The Economic Outlook and Its Implications
Executives and investors must set their strategies with an eye to the economic outlook. The problem is that the outlook is so clouded right now. After the recent 'Great Recession', the economy began to grow. Still, there are justified fears of a double-dip recession. Almost all economic forecasts are too focused on predicting just one possible outcome. However, the current extraordinary uncertainty implies that various scenarios are quite possible. Rosensweig will analyze the economic outlook, including a portrayal of the more likely scenarios. While discussing these scenarios over the relevant time horizons, he will highlight the implications of each for your industry and describe how audience members should prepare.
Global Economic, Financial, and Demographic Trends Impacting Investing
Investors know that global investing is likely to continue to gain prominence. Will investments in foreign markets, both advanced and emerging, increase long-run returns for a given level of risk? Where do global investments properly fit into different investors' portfolios? Do demographic factors overseas have even more of an impact than the aging of the US baby boom? Which economies will become large and sources of significant growth in the future? This session uses an array of trends to address such questions.
What Global Economic Trends Tell Investors About Portfolio Allocation
The past 15 years have seen nearly unprecedented volatility in both economies and asset markets worldwide. Professor Rosensweig will discuss what scenarios could occur in the volatile future and how to set investing strategies to deal with the current high level of uncertainty. The long awaited rise of big emerging markets, such as China, India, Russia, Brazil, Indonesia, Vietnam, Turkey, and Mexico, present new investment opportunities. The growing importance of these markets, combined with the troubled and debt-ridden yet massive US and European Union economies, make the present an exciting and opportune time to consider global investing strategies. Rosensweig will examine the potential of a new global economy, the need for a global diversification strategy and the implications of global linkages for investors.
Global Economic, Financial, and Demographic Trends Impacting Business Strategy
Business executives looking to grow are bombarded with reports on the world's emerging markets and the need to globalize. Powerful forces are helping populous nations such as China and India increasingly impact the global economy. Rosensweig will help to separate fact from fiction, portraying the trends that should guide a successful growth strategy.
The Global Impact on Your Industry
Some industries know that global markets or global competitors are absolutely crucial to their future. If so, what strategies should firms in the industry adopt? Other industries are impacted by global forces in more subtle ways. However, they need to set strategies reflecting these forces now, because this session will show the growing global impacts on specific industries. Professor Rosensweig tailors his lectures to analyze the implications of trends and forecasts for audience members.
What Every Executive Should Know about the US and the Global Economy
Executives as well as investors must constantly strive to learn and grow, especially given our increasingly competitive and global economy and job market. Keeping up with, and then extending your command of, both the US and the global economy and financial markets is a must. This session aims to help you not only survive, but to thrive in the current volatile and globally-competitive markets.
