2014 Economic Outlook and Year-End Considerations

Wednesday January 01, 2014 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
From Audit Committee Institute

Event Overview:
Is the U.S. economic recovery real? Can other economies -- developed and emerging--keep up the pace? We invite you to replay the latest KPMG/NACD Quarterly Audit Committee Webcast, featuring a dialogue with Leo Abruzzese, director of global forecasting for the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), on the outlook for the U.S. and global economies in 2014. From a deepening, broad-based recovery in the United States, to the effects of stimulus and monetary policy in Europe and Japan, and fresh challenges to emerging markets, particularly surging loan growth in China, Abruzzese looks at the recovering global economy and highlights the risk scenarios and opportunities shaping business decisions in the year ahead. Hosted by Dennis T. Whalen, Partner in Charge and Executive Director of KPMG's Audit Committee Institute, this 60-minute webcast also covered timely year-end financial reporting considerations and key legislative/regulatory developments impacting businesses and board oversight.
