UW Fluno Center Skyview Room, 601 University Ave, Madison, WI (this is an In-person only event).



As we turn the calendar to the new year, questions abound regarding the future state of our global economy. “Permacrisis” is the word of the year for 2022 – as declared by the editors at Collins English Dictionary.

Will that hold true for 2023? And if so, what will it mean for economies, trade, labor and migration?

Join MITA at the 14th annual Global Economic Forecast event where our expert presenters will make their predictions for the global economy, and learn how the local challenges of talent acquisition are impacting Wisconsin’s economic health.
