Canada Economic Outlook: New Headwinds Emerge

with Tony Stillo and Michael Davenport | Online | April 27, 2022

The Canadian economy weathered Omicron better than expected, but new headwinds have emerged that will boost inflation and slow growth. The economic impact on Canada of Russia's invasion of Ukraine should be limited due to few direct trade and financial ties. Rather the fallout for Canada will be primarily via higher global energy and food prices, weaker external demand, and supply disruptions. Domestically, we now expect a correction in Canadian house prices will get underway by autumn, triggered by record unaffordability, rising interest rates, and new policies to tax house-flippers and non-resident-owned vacant homes.

Food price inflation could hit Africa the hardest

with Jacques Nel and Petro van Eck | Online | April 26, 2022

Food accounts for a large share of the consumer price basket in a number of African countries. This means that the impact of surging global food prices will be marked. Higher food prices will filter through to consumers and undermine purchasing power. But the impact will extend far beyond headline CPI: calls for subsidies will either be heeded, putting pressure on the fiscus, or disregarded, resulting in social discontent. In this webinar we look at which African countries look set to be hit the hardest and what this means for the fiscus, monetary policy, and political stability.

Deglobalisation or ‘slowbalisation’?

with Adam Slater | Online | April 20, 2022

We look at whether the Russia-Ukraine conflict could be the trigger for a period of deglobalisation where the decades-long expansion of world trade and investment goes into reverse. We consider the evidence from recent trends in world trade and FDI, the impacts of trade reorientation by Russia and possible changes in payment systems for resource exports from Russia and other economies, and the effect of the war on the potential ‘decoupling’ of the Chinese economy with the economies of the West. Will these factors fracture the world trade system or is a much more muted impact more likely?

世界経済の展望:ウクライナ侵攻と金融政策正常化

Online | April 19, 2022

今次日本語ウェビナーでは、ロシアによるウクライナ侵攻が世界経済へ及ぼす影響について、モデルのシミュレーションなどを用いて定量的に説明します。また、戦争による資源価格の高騰は、米国FEDを一段とタカ派化させ、金融市場ではスタグフレーションへの懸念が高まっています。弊社は現時点ではアグレッシブな利上げ後の利下げ転換でsoft landingするとの見方ですが、同時にFEDが過去に例のない性質と大きさの不確実性に直面していることも示したいと思います。

Which world cities will see the strongest employment growth to 2026, and why?

with Richard Holt and Anthony Light | Online | April 19, 2022

Following the recent publication of our latest forecasts for the world’s leading cities, and against a background of huge short-term uncertainty for the global economy, this webinar will stand back, and offer a medium-term (to 2026) view of job prospects in major cities. Have the pandemic, the inflation surge and supply shortages, and now the Russian invasion of Ukraine, changed everything? Or will cities in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific gradually return to their pre-pandemic trajectories? Which cities will be the winners, and which are the ones that are most likely to struggle?

Build-to-rent in Australia: lift-off for a developing investment class

with Michael Dyer and Timothy Hibbert | Online | April 14, 2022

An immature asset class to date, the Australian residential build-to-rent (BTR) sector is currently undergoing a period of rapid growth. A pipeline of around 10,000 units is expected to commence over 2022 and 2023, with most mooted developments located in Victoria. Modest performance and heightened cash flow risks in other property asset classes, alongside supportive state government legislative shifts and a tightening rental market are providing significant tailwinds.

US Outlook: Shifting headwinds

with Kathy Bostjancic and Lydia Boussour | Online | April 12, 2022

The US economy faces shifting headwinds - Higher inflation and greater uncertainty triggered by Russia's invasion of Ukraine are overshadowing current concerns about Covid. We anticipate real GDP will grow by 3.2% this year and slow to 2.0% in 2023, but risks are tilted to the downside given the intensifying inflation shock, increased supply chain stress, a more hawkish Fed, and a large fiscal drag.

Late climate action is better than no action

with Felicity Hannon | Online | April 4, 2022

There are some signs that the world is waking up to climate risks and the benefits of greater renewable capacity. In this webinar Felicity Hannon will present Oxford Economics’ new Slow and Constrained scenario in which policymakers accelerate climate action and implement more aggressive policies in 2030. This helps to close the commitment gap and net zero emissions are achieved by 2075. Our analysis shows that the inequitable long-run economic damages from inaction are so great that late climate action is better than no action.

with Nicola Nobile | Online | March 30, 2022

Il conflitto in Ucraina ha portato ulteriori incertezze sulla ripresa dell’economia che, in uscita dalla crisi causata dal Covid-19, doveva già affrontare i rischi causati dall’inflazione e dall’aumento del prezzo delle commodities. Questi due aspetti sono stati ulteriormente amplificati dall’invasione dell’Ucraina da parte della Russia, che ha immediatamente fatto scattare delle pesanti sanzioni da parte del mondo occidentale.

with Callee Davis and Zaynab Mohamed | Online | March 29, 2022

As Western Europe accelerates a structural transition away from Russian energy dependence, Africa will play a salient role in filling this void.

We also look at where political, institutional and governance risks might hinder this transition.

Macro Strategy – Positioning for late cycle dynamics

with Javier Corominas and Daniel Grosvenor | Online | March 24, 2022

The Russian invasion of Ukraine means the Dollar and other global risk-free assets will continue to be bid for the next few weeks but will ultimately unwind once the funding stress is over in money and FX swap markets. Looking ahead, we are now entering a late cycle environment, and this implies a move to a more positive stance on US duration. We remain overweight non-US equities on the back of a significant valuation and sentiment driven gap that has emerged following the risk-off price action thus far.
