Changes in the Global Economic Order
Faced with the ongoing fallout from the financial crisis, this International Roundtable considered the near-term risks to the international economy and how the longer-term shift in the global centre of economic gravity from West to East will shape the future structure and sources of finance for investment and business around the world.
- How well is the global financial system likely to cope with the unwinding of monetary stimulus over the next few years? Where are the key vulnerabilities?
- Will the proposed new regulations provide greater resilience for surviving future financial shocks or are we still highly vulnerable to another catastrophic financial meltdown?
- What will be the future structure and sources of finance for investment and business around the world in the context of changing capital flows? How might this be affected if the current turmoil in the Gulf states worsens?
