As the New Year gets under way, close observers could be forgiven for thinking that the inflation crisis is close to resolution. But is it? And if inflation is falling back to normal levels, what are the implications for business and, most importantly, interest rates?
Those are some of the big questions tackled by the Macro Memo podcast as it looks ahead at prospects for 2024.
The team—Mark Kennedy and George Lagarias of Mazars, and Gavin Hinks of Board Agenda—also look at the risk of trade wars and whether the EU’s concern with Chinese electric cars reflects bigger issues.
Lastly, the programme looks at labour markets and how companies will cope with a global shortage of skills, a big theme of the World Economic Forum’s meeting this year in Davos.
All this and more in Board Agenda’s podcast series, The Macro Memo: the global trends briefing for boards and directors. You can access the podcast via Apple, Spotify and wherever you get your podcasts. Don’t forget to hit subscribe.
