Economic growth and prosperity

For policy makers, private sector leaders and those in not-for-profits, making sense of the economic picture is no easy task. Everyday newspapers are filled with stories covering the cost of living crises, stagflation, the impact of the war in Ukraine on gas and fuel prices, how Brexit has impacted trade, concerns there are more jobs than eligible workforce, and so much more.

What does this all mean for the public, private and not-for-profit sectors? What are the trends and how is the economic crises likely to play out?
