As the world enters the third year of the COVID-19 crisis, economic developments have been both encouraging and troubling. This conversation between World Bank Group president David R. Malpass and PIIE president Adam S. Posen will explore the global economic outlook. They will discuss three main themes from the World Bank's January 11 Global Economic Prospects report: unprecedented macroeconomic imbalances, rising income inequality, and exceptional uncertainty.
