The economic and geopolitical outlook for 2023

2022 was a year of severe turbulence, with a war in Europe, a global energy crisis and unprecedented inflation that triggered a synchronized monetary tightening response by central banks.

What's the outlook for 2023? With Megan Green and Matthew Goodwin, renowned experts and regular contributors to these talks, we discuss the current state of the global economy, politics and financial markets, focusing on what to expect in the near future. We  try to shed light on the geopolitical landscape and trade relations, China's reopening, the central banks' roadmap and the US dollar's performance.

We explore the risks and opportunities to expect this year in what promises to be a very interesting talk.
