Webinar: Current economic development of Slovakia and Europe
Accept our invitation to an online webinar on the current economic situation with Róbert Prega, Chief Economist of Tatra banka and Gunter Deuber, Head of Economics and Financial Analysis at Raiffeisen Bank International. They gave you a closer look at the current events in the economic field in Slovakia and Europe on September 26, 2022.
In the lecture and subsequent discussion, we addressed the following topics:
- Nominal versus real world
- Is there a recession ahead?
- Are we already past the peak of inflation?
- The ECB has indeed started raising interest rates. Where will he go?
