Global Cities: Identifying opportunities amid long-term challenges

with Anthony Bernard-Sasges and George Bowen | Online | December 6, 2023

The established world order of urban economic power is evolving and by 2050 there will be sizeable shifts. Many mature economic powerhouses in the developed world are facing demographic timebombs and are likely to fall down the global rankings as a result. Replacing them, in scale though not prosperity, will be cities in emerging markets, though these cities aren’t without risk and many face a plethora of challenges. In this webinar, we will discuss some of the key long-term trends, challenges and opportunities facing city economies.

How to manage sustainability risks over time

with Jake Kuyer and Carina Manitius | Online | November 2, 2023

Economic forecasting and scenario analysis across countries and sectors are critical to developing a future proof strategy for your business. Drawing on our team of 350+ full-time economists we can project how a company’s economic profile, including value chains, might change over time, assessing the exposure to risk, such as physical & transitional risks associated with climate change, and stress test macroeconomic & socio-political events. In this webinar we will demonstrate how Oxford Economics uses economics and our suite of global, transparent models to help companies manage their direct and indirect impact and dependence on each element of sustainability not just for today, but by taking a forward looking view, to address the challenges of an uncertain future.

Nearshoring – China’s loss is not (yet) Mexico’s gain

with Gabriel Sterne and Joan Domene | Online | July 20, 2023

Media frenzy over nearshoring in Mexico has failed to provide an accurate picture. Mexico is the best-positioned emerging market to gain from global trade dislocation but that does not mean it has seen the greatest benefits up to date. Asian economies and Canada have grown their share of US imports faster than Mexico since the US-China trade decoupling started five years ago. In this webinar, we dissect the visible effects of nearshoring in Mexico’s exports and manufacturing sectors and the implications for the short-term economic outlook.

Energy Disorder

with David Winter and Manuela Kiehl | Online | July 19, 2023

The Global Climate Service quantifies the macroeconomic impacts of five climate scenarios against a stated policies baseline. These scenarios help businesses understand the trade-offs and implications of climate mitigation. This quarter our new scenario – Energy Disorder – demonstrates the cost of policy action that prioritises energy security over decarbonisation. Weak mitigation across sectors causes high physical climate damages. Protectionism associated with regionalisation and more divisive international relations generates trade frictions that cause further hits to output.

Why travel will recover this year in the face of economic headwinds

with Dave Goodger and Helen McDermott | Online | June 23, 2023

2023 will mark a return to pre-pandemic levels of global travel activity, despite a slowing global economy. The reasons for this recovery, and expectations for ongoing growth will be explored within this webinar. The travel sector in advanced economies is proving resilient to the current economic headwinds as households are prioritising a return to leisure travel activities, despite the squeeze on incomes. Corporate travel is also returning in sharp contrast to predictions of the demise of this segment. Emerging markets are also resuming an important role in shaping demand now the majority of travel restrictions are lifted and are growing in importance.

Finding solutions to the environmental emergency: where politics meets economics

with James Lambert, Jake Kuyer and Caroline Franklin | Online | December 13, 2022

The health of the planet has been at the top of the global political and business agenda in recent weeks with COP27 last month and the parallel COP15 on biodiversity. In the past year, extreme weather events including, hurricanes and wildfires have had a devastating impact on the lives of millions of people around the world.
