Climate scenarios: Oxford Economics’ methodological approach explained

Topic: Following the launch of Oxford Economics’ new Global Climate Service we look forward to walking you through the methodological approach to our climate scenarios in detail. Our bespoke scenarios are modelled using new climate policy levers on the Global Economic Model (GEM). The GEM stimulates a connection across three key factors: the climate, the energy system and the global macroeconomy. The model’s enhanced framework draws on our econometric analysis of the climate damage function – a relationship between temperature and productivity – and our latest research on the economic impact of carbon pricing.

Please note that we will be holding one webinar each for EMEA, Americas and APAC friendly time zones:

  • EMEA – Tuesday 9th November| 10:00 GMT
  • Americas – Tuesday 9th November | 16:00 EST
  • APAC – Tuesday 9th November | 10:00 HKT

Frontier market turmoil: Argentina’s value, Sri Lanka’s crisis, Egyptian FX worries

Frontier markets will continue to be volatile in the near term, but bond valuations are attractive with plenty of arbitrage opportunities. We see value in Argentine bonds, as the country should benefit from higher commodity prices and liquidity risks are contained; we focus on the light at the end of Sri Lanka’s tunnel, with markets failing to price in the possibility of a successful IMF program; and also our concerns that further depreciation may be consistent with Egyptian stabilisation efforts.

Latin America’s winners and losers from the war in Ukraine

As a relevant commodity exporter, Latin America stands to benefit from the generalized increase in prices for raw materials. But the gains will not be uniform across all countries or across all sector of the economy, as the renewed rise in inflation will squeeze consumers' incomes and savings.
