Video: Resilience, not false confidence – Alex Joiner
IFM Investors’ Chief Economist, Alex Joiner, Features in our Monthly Economic Update video discussing recent key developments in economies and markets globally.
In this edition, Alex discusses how economic growth is weakening in many advanced economies and could come to a standstill by the end of 2023. While it is hoped that economies can achieve a soft landing, recessions remain a material risk, with
even the US Federal Reserve expecting what it describes as a “mild recession” in the US in the latter stages of 2023.
