WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

The world is in a delicate place: We are in the worst global recession in almost 100 years, a pandemic is spreading, and policy is being passed worldwide at unprecedented speeds.

With the 2020 US election approaching, business leaders must account for the wide variety of post-election policy paths that are in play.

In this replay, guest speaker, Michael Zezas, Head of US Public Policy and Managing Director in Research at Morgan Stanley, shares:

  • His ‘plausible policy paths’ framework given the two assumed nominees: Donald Trump & Joe Biden
  • How strategists can avoid key mistakes, such as assuming that post-election enacted policy will mirror a winning candidate’s platform
  • Key conclusions for the outlook for the US economy, interest rates, FX, credit, and key equity sectors like financials, industrials, energy, and more
