The 2022 Global Economic and Risk Outlook is one of the world's most sought-after webinars as it gives the audience an in-depth look at the key economic, political, demographic and technological issues that are driving the global economy in the coming years, as well as how an uneven global economic recovery has followed the COVID-19 pandemic.
Highlights from the 2022 Global Economic and Risk Outlook:
- The global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic remains highly uneven, with some economies struggling to return to pre-pandemic levels of output.
- More competitive economies with a strong presence in high-tech and high-growth industries have returned to growth much faster than other economies.
- Governments will struggle to cope with the huge deficits that resulted from the economic stimulus measures enacted during the pandemic.
- The center of global economic power will continue to shift towards the Asia-Pacific region, even as economic growth in China fails to return to earlier levels.
- Declining working-age populations, an uncertain outlook for trade and investment, and falling productivity growth rates will make it more difficult to generate long-term economic growth.
- The growing rivalry between the United States and China will come to dominate many aspects of the global geopolitical climate.
- China's growing assertiveness in Asia and further abroad will result in more countries working together to counter China's rising power.
- There will be a series of interesting elections taking place in 2022, including those in the United States, Brazil, Australia, France and South Korea.
- Political polarization and the fragmentation of politics will make it increasingly difficult for stable governments to be formed and to remain in power in many parts of the world.
- Conflict risk will remain dangerously high in many parts of Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and East Europe in 2022.

Executive Director ,
ISA (International Strategic Analysis)
Michael Weidokal has made a career out of helping businesses, governments and other organizations to understand the complexities of operating in international markets. His deep understanding of economics, trade, investment, politics, security and demographics has been utilized by many of the world’s best-known organizations to take advantages of the opportunities provided by international markets, while reducing their exposure to the risks involved with operating in these markets. Among the predictions made by Michael that have come true are:
- The Japan-like long-term economic slowdown in Europe
- The spread of populism and the fragmentation of politics in the West
- The role that low competitiveness has played in the economic struggles of Latin America and other regions
- The emergence of migration as one of this century's dominant political issues
Over the course of his career, Michael has worked with a number of major professional services firms and multinational organizations, helping them to develop models of maximizing the benefits (and minimalizing the risks) of doing business in international markets.
In 2003, he founded ISA (International Strategic Analysis), and his firm quickly became the leading provider of country intelligence, economic forecasting and international market studies for a range of clients around the world, including many of the world’s leading manufacturing companies, professional services firms, banks, government bodies, food and drink companies and universities. Michael is also a contributor to ISA’s best-selling international publications, including ISA’s monthly ISA Country Reports, ISA Risk Forecasts, ISA Economic Forecasts and ISA Region Reports. He also writes the weekly ISA Global Update newsletter and is often the author of ISA’s Research Briefs that are read by thousands of business and government leaders each week. Michael is also a highly-sought-after public speaker. His vast knowledge of international markets and the complexities of modern business, economics and geopolitics is sought-after by conference organizers around the world, while his use of comedy in his presentations helps to keep audiences engaged on what can be quite complex topics.
