"After five years of uncertainty in the marketplace, it’s a relief to see a return to growth. But this new growth cycle is far from typical. Instead of a credit expansion, it’s spurring a contraction of liquidity. As the global economy ramps up, federal bond-purchase programs are being rolled back, tightening credit conditions in key corners of the world. Does this mean growth will shift once again to the big, developed economies, or will global diversification of trade lead the way? Are higher-risk, capital-hungry business ventures in jeopardy, or will they proceed? And are we headed for interest-rate and currency volatility? Discover the answers to these questions and more in these informative Let’s Talk Trade presentations.
