In the decade since the global financial crisis threw the world into recession, the U.S. has slowly climbed back to economic health and is now enjoying fairly robust growth, along with one of the strongest job markets in decades. But for many other countries—from Europe to Latin America to Asia—the picture isn’t quite so rosy. Even China’s once booming economy is slowing, following years of double-digit gains. What’s behind the slowdown in the rest of the world, and what impact could it have on the U.S.?

In this episode, Candace Browning, Michael Hartnett and Chris Hyzy provide insights into these questions, and offer suggestions for where investors could look for opportunities going forward.
