This talk will examine the impact of Brexit and Trumponomics on the markets. After an initial sell off, markets rallied on the Brexit vote and took another step higher on the election of Donald Trump as US president. Will this continue? Where are the next surprises and are populist election victories good for markets?
Royal Overseas League, St James's Street, SW1A 1LR. 6.30pm - 8pm.
This meeting will be preceded by the ERC AGM. This is open to members only.

How to Check the Health of the UK Electricity Supply Sector
The Economic Research Council has commissioned a report from John Constable (Director of the Renewable Energy Foundation), which highlights the key issues surrounding the UK’s current energy policy. The UK’s energy policy over the last two decades has been a disaster, and recent developments have only papered over the cracks. The only long-term solution is to increase base load supply with sustainable and reliable electricity generation.
