Webinar Format: 45 minutes online presentation, 15 minutes live Q&A

President Trump has escalated the trade war with China, and nearly everyone has been wrong-footed by the move. Expectations were strong that an agreement ending the war, or at least putting it on hold, was imminent. Odds remain high that Trump and Chinese President Xi will soon come to terms. But suddenly a number of other scenarios seem possible, even one in which the U.S., China and global economy suffer a recession.

In this webinar, we will explore the impact of potential scenarios based on our Global Macroeconomic Model.
