The global economy has been battered by a series of crises in recent years, and 2024 appears likely to be another year of economic and geopolitical instability. This outlook is due to a confluence of factors: financial sector turmoil, high inflation, ongoing effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and the lingering impacts of three years of COVID. Moreover, the extreme weather events of this summer – extreme heat, violent storms, wildfires in some parts of the globe and flooding in others – have all come with a cost to the global economy. As a result, the International Monetary Fund forecasts that global growth will continue to decline in 2024, particularly in advanced economies.

To provide greater insights into the data and the underlying trends, join us to hear from Michael Weidokal, Founder and Executive Director of International Strategic Analysis (ISA). ISA provides country intelligence, economic forecasting, and international market studies for many of the world’s leading companies, including Amazon, Lockheed Martin, Ford, Siemens and FedEx. Mr. Weidokal will provide his thoughts on how the global economy is shaping up for 2024, and how you can prepare for the changes that lie in store for the coming year.
