Highlights from the 2023 ISA Global Economic and Risk Outlook

Economic Highlights

  • The global economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic has been cut short by soaring inflationary pressures and supply chain disruptions.
  • Inflationary pressures will remain high in Europe and many emerging markets, but will begin to recede in the United States and other parts of the world.
  • More competitive economies with a strong presence in high-tech and high-growth industries will withstand the current difficulties better than there less-competitive counterparts.
  • Labor shortages will persist in some sectors of the economy, but unemployment will rise in other areas as the global workforce continues to undergo a dramatic transformation.
  • Declining working-age populations, an uncertain outlook for trade and investment, and falling productivity growth rates will make it more difficult to generate long-term economic growth.

Geopolitical Highlights

  • The growing rivalry between the United States and China will come to dominant many aspects of the global geopolitical climate.
  • China's growing assertiveness in Asia and further abroad will result in more countries working together to counter China's rising power.
  • The conflict in Ukraine will enter a more dangerous phase as Russia is unlikely to have the forces necessary to make a major breakthrough against dogged Ukrainian resistance.
  • There will be a series of interesting elections taking place in 2023, including those in Argentina, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh and Spain.
  • Political polarization and the fragmentation of politics will make it increasing difficult for stable governments to be formed and to remain in power in many parts of the world.
