Trade, Politics, and the Global Economic Outlook in 2020

January 22, 2020

The 2019-2020 Foreign Policy Forum series is presented by Hitachi Healthcare Americas.

Global growth slowed considerably over the last three quarters of 2018 and into 2019, and rising trade and global tensions have increased uncertainty in both the global trading system and in international cooperation in general. In an overall economic outlook published in November of 2019, it was projected that world economic growth would be at a decade low in 2020. Join us in January as we host Marcus Noland (PhD) for a broad discussion of global economic trends and the international financial outlook for 2020. How will governments react to global economic challenges in the new year? What policy shifts can be made within the U.S., and internationally, to account for low growth trends?

Marcus Noland is the Executive Vice President and Director of Studies of the Peterson Institute for International Economics. He has been with the Peterson Institute since 1985 and served as the Deputy Director from 2009-2012. Noland’s research focuses on the intersection of economics, political science, and international relations, and he has specific knowledge and interest in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Noland has authored over a dozen books and has written many scholarly articles on U.S. trade policy, the diverse economies of the Asia-Pacific region, and international economics.
