The Old Normal for the World Economy

Tuesday, May 6, 2014 - 7:00 PM
CIGI Campus Auditorium, 67 Erb Street West, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
May 6

After the financial crisis, we are returning to a world much more like the late 19th than the 20th century.  This is a world where globalization continues but is less rules-based than its US hegemony.  This is a world in which the poor countries are likely to continue to catch up with the rich but the richer countries are likely to grow more slowly.

Introducing Adam Posen will be Domenico Lombardi, director of CIGI's Global Economy Program. Following the lecture, Domenico will also join Adam in discussion and for the Q&A session.
