About Worldwide Exchange: Trade Links

  • In the wake of the 2008 financial crash, export volumes have plunged around the world to far below pre-crisis levels—and the problem is expected to only get worse as spending drops in the developed world and calls for protectionism grow louder virtually everywhere. What does that mean for multinational businesses, and how does it affect investors’ portfolios? More than ever, it’s critical for executives and investors alike to understand the risks and rewards of global trade. CNBC will investigate this question through interviews with government officials, corporate leaders and industry experts, appearing weekly on “Worldwide Exchange” every Monday at 10:50 a.m. CET (4:40 a.m. New York time).
