Most business analysts are forecasting the start of the next global recession during the second quarter of 2020. Some countries may already be in recession during the first quarter of this year. Less clear is the likely nature, severity, duration, challenges, and opportunities associated with the next recession. This recession will be significantly different from prior recessions and come at a time when policy makers, financial institutions, other businesses, and consumers are not well-prepared to weather a deep recession.
In the webinar, we will briefly review the history of major country, regional, and global recessions and financial crises over the last four decades to see what we can learn from these experiences and to highlight how the next recession could be different in terms of its characteristics, severity and duration. We will spend the most time looking at the factors that could enable or inhibit a fast recovery. The objective is to provide insights and practical guidelines for business planning in a time of high uncertainty.
Key benefits: Opportunity to gain a better understanding of the likely nature of the next recession and what factors could enable or inhibit a fast recovery.
