The questions we will address include:

  • Has global growth has passed its peak amid slowing U.S. growth and other economies failing to take on growth leadership?
  • What is the future of DM wage inflation, and will a debt wall in DMs and EMs become a constraint on growth?
  • In the policy arena, what is the outlook for DM central bank normalization and how prepared are EMs to weather Fed tightening?
  • What are the prospects for protectionism in 2019, and how much fiscal space do governments have to protect economic growth?
  • How will our Themes (notably populism, which we will revisit) impact financial markets?
