Since 2012, global output growth has sagged, trade has run flat, and inflation has disappeared. The world economy, and global markets, are clearly rebalancing in unexpected ways.

In this session, we will be joined by Richard Martin of IMA Asia to talk about these challenges. In his opening remarks, Richard will focus on the underlying changes in the global economy and touch on how Asian economies might perform over the next five years. In part, the goal is deciding which forces can override the new normal, and then thinking about how they are likely to transform markets. Opening comments will be brief, with a focus on debating the issues.
