Global DIY-Network: Dr. Ira Kalish – Global Economic Overview 2020

On Tuesday the 10th of November Dr. Ira Kalish, Chief Global Economist at Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd, presented a Global Economic Overview on the Global DIY-Network.

Dr. Kalish’s presentation highlighted the economic outlook in the Covid-19 era and post Covid-19, with a particular focus on the US-China relationship, the effects of lockdowns on economies, monetary policy and European response to Covid-19.

In regard to the post Covid-19 era Dr Kalish suggested that working from home will remain in the longer term, with many Business leaders anecdotally stating this, resulting in less demand for energy as well as fewer office buildings, and potentially an urban to rural migration. Further to this virtual meetings are likely to become commonplace, as well as companies looking to diversify their supply chains.

The interview can be re-watched in its entirety through the Global DIY-Network.
