Global Economy Lectures

The global economy is weakening. Global growth is estimated at 3.7 in 2018, according the International Monetary Fund’s latest figures, and will slow to 3.5% in 2019. Europe is particularly affected. Prospects are much more uncertain than they were just a few months ago, forcing central banks to rethink their strategy of withdrawing stimulus. Several factors are at play and several risks are emerging.

The Global Economy Lectures edited by Alessandro Merli, Associate fellow of the Johns Hopkins University at the School of Advanced International Studies in Bologna and contributing writer for the Italian Financial daily Il Sole 24 Ore, offer the possibility of trade wars and the waning of the international economic order established after World War II, passing through the troubles of the monetary union and European politics facing nationalism and populism, to the still-unsolved aftermath of the decade-old global financial crisis.

The fourth round of the Global Economy Lectures will be dedicated to the new rules of global finance ten years after the financial crisis. Guest of the event Ignazio Angeloni, member of the Supervisory Board at the European Central Bank.
