Economic forecasting is a tricky business; they say the key to success is to forecast often. Megan Greene is unafraid to have out of consensus views and has a fantastic forecasting track record. She examines high frequency economic data, structural trends, global flows, political factors and policy developments to determine the state of the global recovery and to highlight risks and opportunities for businesses and markets. In this keynote presentation, Greene will examine these factors to offer insight on where the global recovery is heading, including an outlook for international supply chain challenges, inflation and climate change.
