Latin America: the key themes that will shape the region’s outlook in 2022
Topic: As the easy gains from the reopening fade and policy support is quickly withdrawn, Latin America is headed towards its old equilibrium of low trend growth in 2022. Please join our Chief LatAm Economist, Marcos Casarin, as he discusses the challenges around a possible disorderly withdrawal of stimulus and the risks of social unrest and institutional deterioration in the region. A special focus will be given to the inflation outlook and the implications to monetary policy.

Key themes for 2024 – another year of price weakness
Energy and metal markets have experienced a sharp reversal in prices this year, as we expected, diminishing the Super cycle thesis of our competitors. In this webinar, we examine the key themes affecting commodity markets in 2024 as the energy transition gathers pace and discuss our leading calls for prices in the year ahead. Overall, we expect another year of price weakness as we forecast the global economy to grow at its slowest pace since the global financial crisis, excluding the pandemic. We also anticipate supply to improve across commodity markets next year, which will further weigh on prices.Find Out More
