How Will the Trump Presidency Impact the World Economy, Global Businesses, and Investments?
Consider these speakers as you navigate the risks, uncertainties, and opportunities of a new global landscape:
Host of CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS • Washington Post Columnist
“The election of Donald Trump poses a fundamental question: Is the era of globalization over? Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the free movement of capital, goods, services, and people accelerated across the world. These trends are either slowing down or reversing. Deglobalization will have profound implications.”
CNN Global Economic Analyst • TIME Economics Columnist
“Our economic future is deeply entangled with politics. A Trump presidency fundamentally challenges the future of globalization and status quo capitalism... A new era of slower growth has already begun. And if Trump delivers what he’s promised over the last year – unfunded tax cuts, tariffs, barriers to immigration and a large dose of economic populism without any real constructive job creating policy behind it – his presidency will make it slower still.
Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Macro Advisory Partners
“The election of Donald Trump represents a material rupture in the macro environment for investors and corporations. The forces of uncertainty and volatility that have defined the fragmentation of the global economy – what for years I’ve called an "Archipelago World" – will now be accelerated. For every boost to the U.S. economy coming from tax cuts or infrastructure investments, new sources of potential instability will arise from possible conflicts over trade, security, and immigration. A worldwide wave of populism and nationalism will redefine the landscape for investors and business and place an even greater premium on macro diligence. Every assumption about markets, policy or regulation needs questioning.”
