SPG Forum – Keynote: Living with Covid-19 – The Economic Outlook

Trevor will be speaking on Monday 16 November, 10:20–11:20 am at the 2020 SPG Forum to be held virtually from the 16 – 20 November 2020

Session Description: The effects of COVID-19 are everywhere. Recovery is underway but will remain weak for some time – essentially until a vaccine or a clutch of treatments is found. A return to an economy with 90% of its previous level of output rather than to 100% of it. In other words, some of the economy’s current capacity will be permanently lost as a result of the pandemic. We have record low rates and a surge in public sector debt. This has implications for corporate failures, which are likely to rise, and higher unemployment, which will increase bankruptcies. The only thing we can be certain about is greater uncertainty. So, what indicators to watch out for? Trevor Williams will focus on these in a look at the economy and capital markets.
