Madison International Trade Association: Jan. 8 event – Global economic forecast: Identifying opportunities in an uncertain world

MITA will start the new year with a discussion of how the global economy got to where it is as of January 2013 and potential scenarios for what the future will bring. The Euro Zone Crisis, the Fiscal Cliff, and Middle East unrest will continue to influence decisions around the world, but what are the wild cards that could make 2013 an even more interesting year than 2012? What are the long-term changes that are rebalancing the global economy?

Two distinguished speakers at MITA’s January program will provide an update of the economic, commercial, demographic, and policy reforms changes that are affecting the world.. Attendees will learn about obstacles to the global recovery as well as opportunities that exist in the midst of changing economic forces. Attendees will also have the chance to network with experienced international professionals from throughout the Midwest.

Our first speaker, Mr. James Glassman, is a Managing Director and Senior Economist with JPMorgan Chase. Our second presenter, Dr. Ian Coxhead, is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, University of Wisconsin – Madison, specializing in development economics, globalization, growth, and development.

(We regret that Dr. Jeremy Suri who was originally announced as one of our speakers will not be able to join us in January).
