Program Economist, ITR Economics

Guidance in an uncertain economy

Never has it been more critical for you to have clear, impartial and data-driven perspective on how factors such as COVID-19 and oil price volatility will impact the economy moving forward, and what you should be doing in response. This session from ITR Economics will help you determine the best course of action for the most important part of the economy — you and your business. ITR will cut through the noise to present its expectation of the human and business impact of these black swan events. Additionally they will:

    1. Look at a system of leading indicators proven to signal cyclical turns in the economy and markets.
    2. Present the outlook for the market segments most important to your industry.
    3. Assess interest rate and other financial market trends, including the latest information on stock market performance.
    4. Consider your 3, 5 and 7-year planning needs, and talk about preparing for challenges and opportunities in the 2020s.
