Teleconference: Will the G7 Fix the Global Economy?

Event Co-sponsors

From a slowdown in demand in Asia to continued risks facing Europe, as well as uncertainties facing the United States, concerns for the global economic outlook are rising. Finance ministers from the Group of Seven industrialized nations will meet May 20-21, just prior to the G7 summit on May 26-27 in Ise-Shima, Japan. Finance Ministers will discuss risks to growth prospects worldwide, and will focus on policies to reduce those risks and foster stronger economic performance in all regions. But is the G7 united in assessing those risks and prioritizing policy responses? What actions can the group take, if any, to avert a hard landing?

Please join us for a teleconference discussion on the G7 and it's impacts on May 23rd by dialing 1-800-369-1772.  The passcode for the call is 13304.
