Economic growth

ACS banner Jun14“Not with a bang but with a whimper”.

The blog’s 6-monthly webinar for the American Chemical Society (ACS) takes place next Thursday, 5 June, at 14.00 Eastern Summer Time.  And once again, the ACS has kindly arranged for blog readers to register for it free of charge.

As feared in last December’s Year-end Review, the promised economic recovery has disappointed.  US GDP instead actually fell 1% in Q1.

Key topics to be covered in this Thursday’s ACS webinar include:

  • Is there enough demand to justify $100B+ of US shale gas investment?
  • How will China’s new economic policies impact the world?
  • Opportunities from rising life expectancy and falling fertility rates?

The blog will be joined on Thursday by Mark Jones of Dow Chemical Corporation, who will moderate the webinar.  We will discuss the key issues and trends likely to impact in H2.  And, of course, we will respond to questions from our audience.

The webinars are now in their 6th year, and continue to prove very popular.  Please click here to register for next Thursday’s event.
