A Macroeconomic View of the Markets

2016 entered with a bang. Recent volatility has many of us questioning whether a rebound will be quick or slow to surface. The transition to growth of the global macro economy has been roiling the markets for some time. Equity turmoil in China, the Fed lift-off, the outlook for U.S. fiscal policy, and the future of the Euro have all been recurring themes in the markets for at least five years.

In this webinar, Nasdaq's Chief Economist, Frank M. Hatheway, focuses on the outlook for the world’s largest economy as the U.S. moves toward policy normalization and simultaneously goes through a presidential election cycle. With a focus on the markets, he covers the outlook for economic growth and the key drivers behind it.
