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.

US Macro Outlook: Growth set to falter?

with Michael Pearce and Nancy Vanden Houten | Online | October 31, 2023

The economy has remained resilient through the end of the third quarter, but we expect a combination of high interest rates, tighter lending conditions and more restrictive fiscal policy will push the economy into a sharp slowdown over the coming quarters. A prolonged period of below-trend growth will help to lower inflation back closer to the Fed’s 2% target. But with the Fed approaching its inflation target from above, officials are likely to take an extremely cautious approach to lowering interest rates next year and beyond.

Using alternative data in macro forecasting and research

with Innes McFee and Tomas Dvorak | Online | October 26, 2023

Alternative data are a promising area of economic forecasting and analysis. Novel indicators such as mobility, electricity consumption, internet searches, or proprietary sentiment indices allow us to track economic developments and trends with a much shorter lag, at much higher frequency, and often on a much more granular scale than when relying on standard aggregate macro data. In this webinar, we assess the use of alternative data in macroeconomic forecasting and research, including common pitfalls, appropriate methods and best practices based on our continued use of alternative data at Oxford Economics. We also demonstrate the existing uses of alternative data in different lines of work at Oxford Economics.

Why the crisis in crisis resolution could go on for decades

with Gabriel Sterne and Maya Senussi | Online | October 18, 2023

Stricken sovereigns are suffering as China and the Western-dominated IMF Board engage in a titanic wrestling match over crisis-resolution architecture.

Global Climate Service – From Bright to Bleak: Taking Stock of Climate Futures

with Beatrice Tanjangco, Toby Whittington and Manuela Kiehl | Online | October 17, 2023

Oxford Economics produces climate scenarios updated quarterly, using our world class models to quantify physical and transitional risks at a macroeconomic and sectoral level. Our models are hybrid structural models with transparent, verifiable channels and clear, detailed reporting on assumptions and methodology. This quarter we have expanded our coverage to highlight the full spectrum of the physical and transition risks associated with climate change. Scenarios at the tail end of distribution such as Energy Disorder focusses on energy security and Climate Catastrophe focuses on what happens if governments fail to meet policy pledges – both mean the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere intensifies and result in more severe physical damages that accelerate over time. These scenarios are critical for risk assessment. At the other end of the spectrum, there are multiple paths to keep temperatures in check, and these can be transformative or disruptive. In this webinar, we will present our findings across a range of net zero scenarios and the more extreme physical risk scenarios. We will also discuss new model developments and updates to our fossil fuel demand forecasting methodology.

Luxury cruising – the new normal

with Dave Goodger and Christian Savelli | Online | October 10, 2023

Luxury cruise capacity is set to nearly double by 2028, with the Luxury Segment capacity on track to expand 87% compared to 2019, three times the growth rate for the overall industry. This boom is being fuelled in part by new entrants, ramping up competition for existing operators. However, pricing remains robust as the segment has been underserved, while luxury travel demand remains robust.

Canada Economic Outlook: Economy stalls as hard landing inexorably grinds nearer

with Tony Stillo and Callee Davis | Online | October 5, 2023

Canada's economy has now likely fallen into the recession that we have long been expecting. Growth stalled in two of the last three quarters and momentum entering Q3 was weak. Key imbalances – highly indebted households and overvalued house prices – can't evade the coming full impact of the Bank of Canada's aggressive hike in the policy rate. An imminent consumer pullback, combined with a deepening housing correction, will finally push the economy into recession.

Is city travel recovery a return to pre-pandemic norms?

with Dave Goodger, Kieran Ferran and Emma Laverty | Online | October 3, 2023

City tourism recovery continues and our latest forecast update suggests that 2023 will be the year when many markets will regain 2019 levels in terms of total arrivals (international and domestic) with many more on the cusp of a recovery. But the balance of travel segments has changed, and recovery in some international and long-haul segments will take longer for many cities. We will discuss the latest trends in this session as well as the reasons why recovery to date may differ from prior expectations. Any problems associated with over tourism will also be discussed as we reach previous pre-pandemic peaks.

Global soft patch to push central banks towards policy pivot

with Ben May | Online | September 22, 2023

Economic resilience has been the key theme for the first half of 2023, but we have repeatedly argued that this unexpected strength mainly reflects spending borrowed from the future. Recently, it has become increasingly clear that the transition to weaker growth has begun. We expect a combination of a steady easing in headline and core inflation over the coming months and recessions or lacklustre growth to prompt the Fed and the European Central Bank to start cutting rates in April or May next year. The subsequent speed of policy loosening will be slow, in line with past cycles where cuts begun whilst core inflation was above target.
