Following on from a rapid post-pandemic recovery, the world economy is fraught with uncertainty and volatility driven by inflation, energy crisis and escalating inequality. The UK economy appears to be particularly precarious. Fortuitously for us, UK INSEAD alumni, Professor Antonio Fatás will be briefly visiting London to serve as an expert at a policy forum to advise on The Future of Digital Money and Payments. Antonio has generously agreed to address us on “The World Economy: what lies ahead?” as well as field a few questions on the governance of Digital Currencies.
