We were growing used to the ‘new normal’ of low growth, low wages, low inflation, low yields, and high and rising public anger. Then Covid19 came along. Welcome to the ‘Next Normal’.
We are all in the dark as to exactly what it will look like. However, one thing is certain – it will be worse. Much worse. For almost everyone. All pre-existing trends have been amplified and accelerated at unprecedented speed. So what does this mean for markets and for businesses as we collectively grapple to find a silver lining?
Historically, humankind have proven to be resilient and once again we shall prevail. But how, this time? Come and join Rabobank’s Michael Every and Jan Lambregts on the 2nd of September to find out!
Program 4.00 – 5.00 pm
