Disentanglement of the Global Economy

Washington D.C., USA

October 18, 2019


Official Partner for special session: The Search for Inclusive Growth: SDGs

14:40 – 16:00


The US-China trade war could trigger a major disruption of the global financial order. The series of sessions during this conference looked first at the state of the global economy and examine the current evidence pointing to a disentanglement of the global economy, before then continuing the current debate on monetary policy frameworks in advanced countries. The discussions also considered a forward-looking agenda such as how emerging economies’ growth models will need to be adapted to the new era and what is in store for the future of money as we see the emergence of private sector players.
