On November 14, over 80 students gathered for a presentation by Joyce Chang *90, Chair of Global Research at J.P. Morgan’s Corporate and Investment Bank. Chang, who is also on the JRCPPF External Advisory Council, provided an overview of the global macroeconomy, highlighting trends in labor markets, corporate and household debt, trade, and a range of socio-political factors. She concluded that recession risks are rising again as renewed trade tensions have dented business sentiment and that corporate caution could affect hiring and spill over into consumer sentiment.
Following the talk, Chang met with a small group of JRCPPF student associates for an informal conversation about academic life and career pathways. Professor Natalie Bachas, who introduced Chang, commended her longstanding commitment to Princeton through involvement in alumni affairs, student mentorship, and in advisory roles. Chang's podcast interview with Policy Punchline will be available soon.
