Deflation: Boom or Bust?

Wednesday, February 24, 2016 - 5:00pm

World Policy Institute is hosting its next World Economic Roundtable on "Deflation:  Boom or Bust,” featuring Diana Choyleva, chief economist and head of research at Lombard Street Research. In her presentation, Dr. Choyleva will explain why an economic slowdown in China could be positive for the world economy, resulting in what she calls a “deflationary boom.” A step down in demand in China for fixed asset investment, she will argue, could help spur a step-up in household spending in the United States, the Euro-Zone, and Britain as the price of commodities and energy remains lower for longer. But she will also outline what could go wrong with this optimistic baseline scenario that would bring the world economy closer to a deflationary bust.

Please note this is a members-only event. If you’d like to attend, please consider enrolling in the World Policy Membership Program today. 

The World Economic Roundtable is a joint venture of New America’s Economic Growth Program and the Walter Eberstadt World Economic Policy Program at the World Policy Institute.  It seeks to help the business, investment, and policy communities understand ongoing changes in the world economy and to promote a discussion of ideas that can advance the goal of a widely shared global prosperity.
