Big Tech, Trade, and the Future of the Economy

Big Tech companies are changing the face of the global financial markets, creating one of the biggest challenges since the financial crisis. How are central banks around the world grappling with fast-changing technology? What does the shift mean for the global economy, regulations, and markets? Will escalating trade wars tip the world into recession or will the long expansion continue?

Join Chicago Booth professors to discuss the state of the global economy and gain insights into the year ahead.
