Professor Antonio Fatás – The World Economy: what lies ahead?
Monday 31 October, 18:30 for 19:00 – 21:00
This event is supported by FTI Consulting LLP
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.
Antonio Fatás is a Professor of Economics at INSEAD. He received his PhD in Economics from Harvard University. He is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Economic and Policy Research in London and has worked as an external consultant for international organisations such as the International Monetary Fund, the OECD and the World Bank.
He teaches the macroeconomics core course in the MBA programme, as well as different modules on the global macroeconomic environment in the Executive Education. His research focuses on the study of business cycles, fiscal policy and the economics of European integration. His articles appear in academic journals such as the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Journal of Monetary Economics, Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, Journal of Public Economics, Journal of International Economics, Journal of Economic Growth, European Economic Review and Economic Policy.
Given our present pre-occupation with exchange rates, inflation and government policy, this evening with Professor Fatás promises to be fascinating occasion. Book at the soonest!
