Course Details

If one was to judge by rampant stock markets, economic growth prospects have never been rosier. But, beneath the bonnet of the global economy, signs of slowdown are gathering. What’s really likely to happen over the next 12 months?  


Cormac Lucey will cover the following topics during this webinar:

• Current official forecasts for the Irish economy

• Prospects for the US economy

• The outlook for the UK economy

• What’s happening in the rest of the world

• What’s really likely for the Irish economy

• Financial market implications


By attending this session participants will be able to understand what’s going on in the international economy and how that is likely to influence the Irish economy over the next 12 months.  


The session is aimed at everyone who must tailor the size of their business to meet the needs of the market, as determined by general levels of economic activity, especially business owners and professionals advising them.


This course assumes no prior economic expertise and is aimed at a general audience but will offer participants advanced insights.
