On the heels of a dynamic first year under the new administration, the economy and employment have improved, but natural disasters and international disputes have taken their toll. How should private and mid-size companies proceed going into the new year? We'll discuss:

  • The growth outlook for the United States in 2018 and factors that could impact it positively or negatively.
  • Likely actions by the Federal Reserve as the year unfolds.
  • Important trends to consider in China, the Eurozone, Japan, and other vital markets.

Participants will learn results of the inaugural Deloitte global economic outlook survey and what could lie ahead for private and mid-size companies in 2018.
