Certainty Amidst Confusion: Global Economist Bernard Baumohl to Present at Virtual Forum

by Catalyst Corporate | Jul 07, 2020

In an era of confusion, Bernard Baumohl provides a much-needed antidote: certainty.

Baumohl, a chief global economist at The Economic Outlook Group, is known for being ahead of the curve in assessing the direction of the U.S. and world economy. His ability to correctly predict the economy's path was recognized by the Wall Street Journal, which ranked Baumohl as the most accurate economic forecaster for 2018.

Baumohl will be among the eight presentations featured during Catalyst Corporate’s virtual edition of the Economic & Payments Forum, held on October 5-6. The tightly focused Forum will provide actionable information at a most critical time – just before the nation goes into a presidential election and as it deals with the social and economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Baumohl began his career as an analyst with the Council on Foreign Relations, a think tank specializing in international affairs and national security. He later served as an economist at European American Bank with responsibilities to monitor the global economy and develop forecasts. Mr. Baumohl was also an award-winning economics reporter with TIME magazine, where he covered the White House, Federal Reserve and Wall Street. He is also a recipient of the John Hancock Award for Excellence in Financial Journalism.

Baumohl is a member of the monthly Wall Street Journal Economic Forecast Panel and his projections on the economy and geopolitical trends are frequently cited in the New York TimesWashington PostBusiness WeekFinancial Times, and on National Public Radio. He also served as a regular commentator on TV's Nightly Business Report.
