Embracing Economic Transformation

Tuesday, May 7, 2024

Geopolitical competition leading to new geo-economic tensions amid relentless global challenges have kept global leaders on their toes. In the wake of policy outcomes following the COVID-19 pandemic, G20 economies have grappled with servicing the largest peace-time deficits in history. The world has adapted and recovered unevenly. While the US has recovered somewhat robustly, its global peers have diverged from their pre-COVID policy responses as they seek to balance growth, inflation, solvency and employment. Where is the state of the world headed amid the current set of global challenges that require vast collective responses? Is this time different? Can we still look to the US for global economic leadership? And what does this mean for global coordination (or lack thereof)? Facing a globally divergent economic landscape for the first time in a decade, how can the US leverage its relative strength to ensure that a soft landing is not disrupted by global economic turbulence?
