The 25th annual Milken Institute Global Conference will open with welcoming remarks from Milken Institute CEO, Michael Klowden, followed by a presentation from Harris Poll CEO, John Gerzema on the release of The 2022 Milken Institute-Harris Poll Listening Project, sharing insights from this year’s research examining the role of business in accelerating social progress.

These opening remarks will be followed by a panel discussion on Global Capital Markets.

The end of 2021 saw fiscal and monetary stimulus in the rear-view mirror and interest rates set to rise modestly. However, new challenges in the new year have put monetary policymakers in a corner. Interest rates are now expected to rise more aggressively to counter rates of inflation not seen since the early 1980s. On the other hand, aggressive rate hikes alongside a global energy crisis could lead to a recession. How are leading market participants thinking about these challenging issues? And what is the role of capital markets in responding to geopolitical crises?
