COVID and Missiles and Mortgage Protests, Oh My!

November 17, 2022

4:30-5:30 p.m. ET


COVID and Missiles and Mortgage Protests, Oh My!

Loud headlines may make it seem like a crazy time to allocate to China, but Andy Rothman will explain why the Chinese government is likely to take a more pragmatic approach to COVID in the near future, which would facilitate an economic recovery at a time when the rest of the world is tightening.

Participants will walk away from this session with a better understanding of:

  • Why many misunderstand Xi Jinping’s economic strategy
  • Milestones to watch to anticipate a change in COVID policy, which could boost growth

The potential impact of rising political tensions between Washington and Beijing, and why conflict over Taiwan is unlikely
