Global Conference 2013
Global Markets in Uncertain Times
Monday, April 29, 2013 / 8:00 am - 9:15 am
Politics is on the minds of global investors and economic observers. In the United States, debt pressures, ideology and other factors led to the struggle over sequestration, yet the recovery is progressing. Europe is still afloat, but the lifeboat is prone to leaks. In China, a new leadership group is trying to revitalize economic growth amid the pressure of rising needs - which implies growing consumer demand. At the start of the 2013 Global Conference, we'll bring experience and judgment to bear on the unknowns of the global economy and markets. Will central banks modify their activist stance? Where are costs rising or falling, and will that change the direction of capital flows? How long can inflation stay tame? Are the next big opportunities in minerals, manufacturing or technology?
