Understanding Economic Intelligence

Do you understand how the economy works and what the key indicators are? Do you know the particulars of an economic outlook and why economists get it wrong so often? This session features Roger Martin-Fagg, an economist turned strategist. His book Making Sense of the Economy is in its fourth reprint. Roger is a practical researcher who focuses on how the economy really works and the behaviour of banks and causes of economic instability. Learn the reasons for boom and bust, productivity challenges driving AI, and where the USA, UK and EU are in the economic cycle. His views on economic intelligence will include forecasts for growth, interest rates, inflation and exchange rates.

Key Takeaways:

  • Be able to recognise ambiguity and develop healthy scepticism.
  • Deepen your understanding of how the economy really works, key indicators, the current economic outlook and how this relates to your company’s performance.
