His outlook:

“Growth, Stagnation, or New Global Crisis Triggered by the Current U.S.-China Trade War?”

The most serious challenge facing advanced economies, and indeed the world as a whole today, is how to return to the higher growth levels prevailing before the recent global financial crisis and more crucially how to avoid another devastating global financial crisis that could result from the current U.S.-China trade war.

Prof. Dominick Salvatore will examine:

– the most effective policies that nations can and should now adopt independently and in a coordinated fashion to stimulate their growth

– the real-world of probability of a new global financial and economic crisis that could be triggered by the current U.S.-China trade war, the policies that governments could adopt to prevent it, and — in any event —  how firms and individuals could prepare in the event of a new crisis.
