    The art of managing business uncertainty

    The art of managing business uncertainty

    In a recent study released by The EIU, The art of managing business uncertainty: A future of work study for Greater China, we took a look at businesses in Greater China. With covid-19 in the backdrop, nearly seven in 10 respondents—senior business executives in the region—said the degree of business uncertainty they’re experiencing today is greater than at any other time in their careers.

    In this episode, our host Jason Wincuinas, senior editor at The Economist Intelligence Unit, speaks to Nick Marro, The EIU's lead analyst for global trade, about the macro picture behind what business leaders were telling us in the report, and the pressures that are driving change and therefore uncertainty in China’s economy.

    Reviving the Dragon: China's Recovery

    Reviving the Dragon: China's Recovery

    China’s leaders have not yet declared an economic growth target for this year, nor have they announced a stimulus package to rival those of 2009, 2012 and 2016. What does this mean for China’s economic outlook?

    In this episode, our host Jason Wincuinas, senior editor at The Economist Intelligence Unit, is joined by Wu Chen, managing director of The Economist Global Business Review. They discussed China's recovery from the pandemic on topics ranging from headwinds and tailwinds for China's economy, unemployment, global supply chains, the current trade war between US and China, to the rise of digital currencies.

    Global Business Barometer ep. 01

    Global Business Barometer ep. 01

    Since first announcing itself in Wuhan in China at the start of the year, the pandemic has led to society-wide lockdowns across the world, bringing all but commerce and services deemed most essential to a sudden halt and leaving large portions of populations sheltering at home and many out of work. The IMF, in its latest World Economic Outlook, predicts the worst economic fallout since the Great Depression as a result of these measures. The WTO has also revised its forecast for global trade in 2020, projecting that volumes could fall by between 13% and 32%, depending on the length of the pandemic and the effectiveness of policy responses.
    To help companies navigate the uncertainty, The Economist Intelligence Unit developed a Global Business Barometer to track private sector views on the impact of covid-19, how businesses are coping, and their plans for the next three months and beyond.
    This episode is hosted by Charles Ross, editorial director of The EIU for Asia, with guest Andrew Staples, editorial director of the Economist Corporate Network.
