Dealing with Global Debt
As countries face economies in recession, increasing debt, and growing fiscal deficits, leaders everywhere will face difficult choices. With the global economy projected by the IMF to contract by -3% in the next year, the world is bracing itself to face uncertainty. This however, is no time for timidity. There is opportunity in the midst of crisis to reset country courses for the economies of the future. From infrastructure to environment, to fiscal strategies for resilience, how can leaders act to leverage this challenge for a better future?
