Retail’s powerful impact on gross domestic product, both domestic and international, is undisputed and influenced by multiple factors. Similarly, innovation and Big Tech has placed its stamp on economic policy, impacting global retail businesses and consumers alike. Hear from two top experts – former Federal Reserve Chair, Dr. Janet Yellen, and Recode’s Co-founder Kara Swisher – who will share their insights and analysis on how retail leaders can navigate a global economic environment that has largely prospered from a resurgent retail industry, but also faces uncertainty following macro-economic policy shifts such as tariffs and Brexit, privacy challenges, and the dominant role of technology in business practices. Led by CNBC’s senior economic reporter Steve Liesman, this conversation will highlight retail’s future in light of the many challenges and opportunities presented by the current global socio-economic landscape.
