The event will "lay out the outlook for the recovery: whether it will out-trump the sluggish growth of the past six years or whether the long slog will persist," said Mira Farka. "We are going through what is perhaps the more perilous patch since the Great Recession as global growth falters, China stumbles, production downshifts and the Fed readies to embark on the first tightening cycle in a decade."
