Europe On The Brink: Brexit, Covid & More…
Yet again, a “hard” Brexit deadline looms for Britain and the EU: The transition period is set to end on December 31 with no deals on trade, transport or financial services in place. Carl Weinberg will weigh the risks of failure, and the consequences, for both sides.
Meanwhile, with Covid-19 cases surging in Britain and Europe, further economic—and financial—disruption from the pandemic is inevitable. How will virus-related disruptions impact demand, supply and prices going forward? Will EU leaders agree to issue Eurobonds to fund the €750 billion SURE stimulus package? What would be the implication for sovereign debt markets?
Join Carl Weinberg for a discussion of the dangers facing these two economies in the months ahead, as well as a review of the pandemic’s threat to the global economy. A question and answer session will follow the discussion.
