In this public lecture John C. Williams will provide an overview of his recent paper, The Global Growth Slump: Causes and Consequences.

Economic growth has slowed across the globe. The global growth slowdown reflects fundamental changes in trends in demographics and productivity. For example, trend real GDP growth in the United States is currently 1.6 percent, the slowest pace in memory. Similar slowdowns are seen in advanced economies across the globe. Nor are emerging market economies immune from this trend, as labor force growth slows to a trickle and the rapid gains in productivity growth associated with earlier stages of economic development are in the rear view mirror.

John C Williams is President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.
