As the world enters a dangerous economic phase of rising interest rates in many countries, join our Masterclass as we ask: will this tip the over-indebted global economy into a longer term recession or will we soon bounce back to the low inflation, low rate environment which seemed like a ''new normal'' only earlier this year? We argue that a difficult new era is inevitable, but that the Gulf may well be in a better position than many other regions to maintain stable economic growth over the next few years.
