The Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2017 forecast argues that, while economic growth will continue, progress will be uneven. Nationalist, nativist challenges on both sides of the Atlantic have underscored frustration with a seemingly winner-take-all economy that has hollowed out much of the middle class. Against this messy tableau, major industries will experience geopolitical impacts that could affect their growth. getAbstract recommends the EIU’s guardedly sanguine analysis to executives and investors for its timely take on the near term.
In this summary, you will learn
- What 2017 might hold for the global economy and for businesses,
- How geopolitics can weigh on economic growth in 2017 and beyond,
- How a handful of significant industries might fare.
