An Oxford Analytica Roundtable: The Shape of 2023 in discussion with Dr Nicholas Redman

Our next roundtable is invite only, where those joining will experience an open discussion with Dr. Nicholas Redman, Editor in Chief of The Oxford Analytica Daily Brief and Director of Analysis, and two members of the Oxford Analytica Analysis team on The Shape of 2023.

2023 has started with the lifting of China’s COVID-19 protocols, the reshaping of Brazil’s government, a major earthquake in Turkey and Syria, Nigeria’s presidential campaign taking an unexpected turn, and another setback in US-China relations—caused by a balloon. These developments interact with the structural factors we identified last year as shaping short-term trends in global politics, commerce and finance. Major central banks continue to shrink their balance sheets, turning away from years of unorthodox monetary policy. The extent to which rates must rise further–to combat core inflation, even as headline inflation is easing–will have a major impact on the economic outlook for major economies, and will determine the financial landscape for government and corporate borrowers across the developing world. The war in Ukraine continues to exert a huge impact on regional economies, as Russia launches a fresh offensive in the southeast and Ukraine presses the case for Western states to provide it with increasingly sophisticated arms. US-China rivalry exerts pressure on supply chains and the outlook for global trade and governance.

Nick and his team will keep their remarks short, leaving time for your questions and comments.
