A Look at the Global Economy

Chatham House, London


Catherine L. Mann, Chief Economist and G20 Finance Deputy, OECD
David Lubin, Head of Emerging Markets Economics, Citi; Visiting Fellow, Global Economy and Finance Department, Chatham House


The OECD prepares outlooks four times a year for the global economy, individual members, and key partners. The presentation on 22 June 2017 will be of the OECD Economic Outlook, launched at the ministerial council meeting of the OECD.  

The key issues for this outlook include:  

  • Will the upturn in confidence indicators be ratified by sustainable improvements in consumption, investment and trade?  
  • Can the disconnect between financial market indicators and metrics of real economic performance be resolved without a sharp snap-back in asset prices?  
  • What is the real reason behind the globalization backlash?  
  • What are the policy recipes to ensure stronger foundations for long-term productivity, to reduce inequalities, and to enable policymakers to make good on promises to their citizens? 

This briefing will be a part of Chatham House’s International Financial Institution (IFI) Briefing series where institutions will share their thinking with leaders in business, government and academia.
