We start our 2024 programme with a debate on the outlook for the UK economy, with two leading forecasters: Anna Leach, CBI and Jari Stehn, Goldman Sachs.

Anna Leach heads the Economic Intelligence team, overseeing the CBI’s assessment of the economic landscape, the CBI’s survey function, and the CBI’s bi-annual macroeconomic forecast. She leads a team of economists, survey specialists and data analysts, who work together to form the CBI’s understanding of the UK’s business environment. She has worked at the CBI since 2008, when she joined as Fiscal Economist working on the CBI’s Budget submissions and public finance analysis.

She moved on to head the economic analysis team in 2012, leading on the CBI’s assessment of near-term economic conditions.

Jari Stehn is Goldman Sach’s chief European economist, responsible for the Goldman Sachs economic research product and forecasts across the region. Prior to assuming his current role, he led the firm’s research on the global economy. Previously, Jari worked in the US Economics Group in New York for six years. He joined Goldman Sachs in 2010 and was named managing director in 2013. Earlier in his career, Jari worked as an economist at the International Monetary Fund in Washington, DC.
