Macroeconomic outlook 2017: the Brexit and its implications

Economic risks and political tensions inhibit economic growth. Reports on the slowing Chinese economy, the persistently low oil price with its negative impact on the emerging markets and the uncertainty following the Brexit vote are slowing down investment readiness while the cheap money policy is losing its positive impact on the real economy. Are we facing the danger of a deep recession or dare we look ahead into 2017 with confidence? These are the questions we will discuss with leading chief economists.
