The world economy in 2020: heading for a crash?
Since the shock of the global financial crisis the world economy had been slowly but unevenly recovering. But now there are reasons to fear that a recession, or worse a crash, could hit in 2020. Trade wars, on-going banking instability, the challenge of the fourth industrial revolution and slowing growth in China could combine to wreck the recovery.
Regent’s University London and the Senior European Experts Group have convened a high-level panel from academia, business, economics and diplomacy to discuss the potential threat and how it might be averted.
Our panel will include: Dr Elias Boukrami (Regent’s University London); Dr Rebecca Harding (CEO Coriolis Technologies and an economist); and Lord David Hannay (a crossbench member of the House of Lords and Chair of the Senior Experts Group).
Registration open from 18:00, with the seminar starting at 18:30.
