2015 Outlook: U.S., Europe and Asia on Diverging Paths

The United States, Europe and Asia face significantly different economic challenges heading into 2015. How might these factors influence global economic growth and investment opportunities in the year ahead? To find out, watch this on-demand webinar in which economists Darrell Spence, Jens Søndergaard, Anne Vandenabeele and Stephen Green share their views on the following topics:

  • The U.S. economy continues to strengthen while the Federal Reserve looks to raise interest rates for the first time in more than eight years. Will rising rates derail the U.S. economic recovery and bring an end to the bull market?
  • Europe struggles with deflationary pressures, economic stagnation and disagreements over austerity versus growth-oriented government policies. Is the eurozone headed for a prolonged deflationary period and another recession?
  • In light of Japan’s many policy twists and turns, what should we expect from “Abenomics” this year, and how will the Japanese economy respond? Is the island nation poised to realize its long-sought goals of higher inflation and faster growth?
  • As China’s economy slows, the policy debate will continue to rage in Beijing over stimulus measures versus strict reform. What are the implications of a slower China for the rest of the world?
