MADISON, WI (December 12, 2022) — As another tumultuous year draws to a close, the world is wondering what may come next. How will international conflicts and alliances continue to impact our daily lives? How will money influence policy-making and political campaigns? Will the global economy finally begin to stabilize, or will current volatility continue? What sorts of trends, influences, and outcomes do experts anticipate for the coming year?

On the next UW Now Livestream, hosted by the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association, UW-Madison experts will discuss their predictions for 2023. The talk will be moderated by Mike Knetter, CEO of the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association.
