Event Details

Markets and the world economy have performed very well over the past few years. But the uneven distribution of that good fortune has given rise to populist movements that question the value of global exchanges. Will increasing trade restrictions threaten the health of the expansion? How will tariff battles affect emerging markets? And can international organizations charged with keeping the economic peace receive the funding and support necessary to realize their objectives? The answers to these, and other questions, will be discussed.
