US macro, industries, and metro outlook – Inflation and war take the spotlight from Covid

with Oren Klachkin and Barbara Byrne Denham | Online | May 17, 2022

High inflation, rising interest rates, greater supply chain stress, and the war in Ukraine have quickly replaced Covid as the major concerns facing the US economy. Despite these new challenges, we think the US economy still stands on solid ground. We look for leisure and hospitality to lead the growth charge as the broader US economy recoups all jobs lost to the pandemic by the end of 2022. Tune in to learn what we think lies ahead for the US economy – with a focus on the path ahead for US metros and regions.

with Angel Talavera and Oliver Rakau | Online | March 2, 2022

As Covid fears dissipate, geopolitical tensions and inflation risks now dominate the outlook.

Will overtourism problems return for cities?

with Dave Goodger and Kieran Ferran | Online | February 15, 2022

Seeds sown for Australian apartment recovery

Online | October 27, 2021

The outlook for the apartment sector has brightened over 2021. The latest data points suggest the sector has passed the trough. The return of investors, the reopening of the international border and an affordability-based shift toward apartments in some cities will underpin unit prices outpacing houses over the coming years. A strong pipeline of institutional programs, the impending completion of major new public transport links across Australia’s major cities, and an emergent build-to-rent sector further cement this rosy outlook.

Lockdown and Vaccines – The ongoing impact of COVID-19 on Australia’s outlook

Online |

The emergence of community transmission of the Delta variant of COVID-19 has sent Australian cities into lockdown. This more transmissible strain of the virus has prompted swift action from state governments to restrict trading and travel activity, which will test the resilience of the maturing recovery. In this session, our Chief Economist Sarah Hunter and Principal Economist Sean Langcake will discuss how the current restrictions are shaping our outlook for the economy in 2021, and the risks associated with more protracted lockdowns. They will also discuss the role of the vaccine rollout in potentially normalising conditions, drawing on recent international experiences. In this panel discussion session, our Chief Economist Sarah Hunter and Principal Economist Sean Langcake will discuss the following: The latest round of lockdowns have clearly impacted household spending and mobility, how long will the recovery take? Is vaccination the only long term solution? And will this be enough? What is the transition to ‘COVID-normal’ likely to look like? We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between the Americas, APAC and EMEA: APAC - Thursday 8th July | 10:30 am AEST EMEA - Friday 9th April | 10:00 am BST Americas - Friday 9th April | 16:00 EDT
