US macro, industries, and regions webinar – How will Omicron’s spread impact the economic recovery?

Topic: 2022 is off to a grim start, with Covid case rates already vastly exceeding previous infection waves, public officials in certain regions re-imposing containment measures, and consumers and businesses treading more cautiously. What’s more, executives across an array of industries are stressed by significant supply-side disruptions, pushing up prices and making it hard for them to meet demand. The unresolved health situation, a growing fiscal drag, and a more hawkish Federal Reserve will make for a delicate economic rebalancing this year. But while the recovery will face headwinds, the economy is in a very different place today than in 2020 and 2021. Tune in to learn more about what we think is in store for the US economy – with a spotlight on the path ahead for US industries and regions.

Africa: What to expect from elections in 2023

Thirteen African countries are scheduled to hold presidential or legislative elections this year. This webinar will focus on the four elections of greatest potential impact: Nigeria, home to the largest population in Africa; Zimbabwe, where the fractious and unloved Zanu-PF has already unleashed violence on its opponents; Gabon, where President Ali Bongo may try (again) to cheat to get a third term; and the DRC, where armed conflict is complicating the already massive task of registering 50 million voters across a territory the size of Western Europe. We will also touch on the elections in Eswatini, Libya, and Madagascar.

These scenarios help businesses understand the trade-offs and implications of climate mitigation. This quarter our new scenario – Climate Catastrophe – underscores the costs of climate inaction. It models a high-emissions pathway by which global warming, temperature volatility and more frequent extreme heat events cause severe physical damages that accelerate over time.
