"US and Global Economies: Reciprocal Ripples"

Markets worldwide are in flux, and investors are trying to understand the consequences. While the US experiences low inflation and uncertainty in labor markets, some emerging economies are facing high debt and slowing growth.

This raises importation questions: How exposed is the US economy to troubles in emerging markets? Could there be a reciprocal economic ripple, where shocks in one part of the world amplify weaknesses in others? And how will the clashing monetary policies of the world's central banks impact countries across the world?

Explore these issues with Randall Kroszner, Amir Sufi, and Austan D. Goolsbee, three Chicago Booth professors and renowned economic experts, whose key insights into these current global trends will frame your understanding of the economic world ahead.

The event will be moderated by Sunil Kumar, Dean and George Pratt Shultz Professor of Operations Management at Chicago Booth.
