We are delighted to invite you to our Summer 2022 Economic Forecast, where we will present and discuss NIESR’s latest forecasts on the UK and global economies, with an opportunity for you to ask questions.
Domestically the soaring energy and food prices, as well as widespread demands for wage increases and the possibility of a recession are just some of the economic challenges facing the incoming Prime Minister. How should they respond to this continued squeeze on real incomes, what should the central bankers' priorities be, and are tax cuts a solution to the problems we are facing? These are just some of the questions our Summer UK Economic Outlook will examine as we seek to navigate the long-term impact of Brexit, Covid-19 and ongoing global uncertainty.
This uncertainty, exacerbated through the ongoing war in Ukraine, is core to our Global Economic Outlook. The continued disruption to supply chains and rising prices have caused major problems for policy makers in the Eurozone and the wider global economy, as well as increased political discontent in some countries, with the Italian Prime Minister resigning and the Sri Lankan President forced out of office. How will these issues play out in the coming months? How will continuing global fragmentation affect developed economies and emerging markets, and what would happen to the world economy if the US or China experienced a slowdown? Our experts examine these issues, together with the ongoing geopolitical shifts and challenges around international trade.
