Deep Dive Webinar - September

Suffering services and unsteady manufacturing

September 22, 2021 | 3pm - 4pm UK (10am - 11am EDT)

The world’s major economies are at different stages in their exit from pandemic restrictions, but a common theme has been that manufacturing has led to the rebound while the services sector recovery has been more uneven and fragile.

However, recent output and export data suggest that the manufacturing recovery is slowing, constrained by prolonged supply-side disruptions. Forward-looking PMI data seems to confirm that confidence is wobbling in manufacturing and is yet to surge for many services. However, these general trends mask significant differences across countries and sectors.

In light of the data on economic activity, and given the surge in producer prices which is yet to fully pass through to consumer prices, where is the global economy headed in the short term? Might the rewards of early vaccination be smaller, and less immediate, than policymakers anticipated? And how might a ‘new normal’ differ from the old?

By attending this webinar, you will be able to answer these questions:

  • Are there major exceptions, by country and sub-sector, to the pattern of manufacturing rebounding and many services sectors continuing to stutter?
  • What changes in the current picture might we expect for the rest of 2021 and early 2022?
  • What are the headline implications for employment and for government plans to withdraw support for their economies?
