Moody’s Teleconference Series: Global Macro Outlook 2016-17 – Global Growth Faces Rising Risks at Time of Policy Constraint 22 & 23 February 2016

Moody’s Teleconference Series:
Global Macro Outlook 2016-17 – Global Growth Faces Rising Risks at Time of Policy Constraint
22 & 23 February 2016
Downside risks to global growth have increased since our last Global Macro Outlook as a further fall in oil prices and concerns about weaker growth in China and potential further currency weakness have accompanied a rise in risk aversion and tightening of financial market conditions. If prolonged, the higher funding costs and constrained market access for many high-yield corporates could have a larger impact on investment and economic growth than currently incorporated in our forecasts.


The following topics will be discussed:
» What role will policy support play in China’s gradual slowdown?
» What economic outlook for policy-constrained Brazil, Russia and South Africa?
» What are the factors behind a lackluster growth outlook in the US, Europe and Japan?
» What are the main downside risks to the global economy?
