Next Friday at 11am, up to a 1000 finance, business and economic experts will gather in the heart of London’s financial district to hear from an array of influential voices in this hour of Brexit, including amongst others: the ECB’s chief economist Peter Praet; the BoE’s chief economist, Andy Haldane; and the BIS’s head of research, Hyun Song Shin.
We had an inkling something like Brexit might happen, so we hedged our bets with programming contingencies (not least because last year’s emergency Greek panel looked like this):
Yes. Standing room only.
This year, after Peter Praet kicks off proceedings at 11am, the FT’s Katie Martin (who has been predicting Brexit for at least 2/3 months) will host an emergency Brexit session at noon featuring: Steve Keen of Kingston University, Toby Nangle of Columbia Threadneedle, Richard Woolnough of M&G and Mike Amey of Pimco.
At 1pm, the FT’s John Authers will oversee a debate in which Ann Pettifor of Prime Economics will set out her case that the ‘New Nationalism’ is a function of of the hyperglobalisation of capital markets. She will then be debated by George Mason University’s Tyler Cowen, blogger and commenter Frances Coppola and the Jerome Levy Forecasting Centre’s Srinivas Thiruvadanthai.
And if you’re worried about the consequences for Japan and the yen, the FT’s David Pilling will be moderating a panel on Abenomics including Hideki Takada of the OECD and Japanese Ministry of Finance, Charles Dumas of Lombard Street and Kit Juckes of Society Generale.
Kadhim Shubber, meanwhile, will be running through the consequences for the fintech scene in a P2P panel featuring Sachin Platel, of Funding Circle, Harsh Patel, of Victory Park, Rhydian Lewis of RateSetter and Bloomberg’s Tracy Alloway.
Tickets are still available. And the good news is they still cost £100+ VAT in the UK. The even better news is that if you have the foreign currency they cost $138+VAT, 14,214 yen, €124 or SFr 134 accordingly.
Secondary market trading of Camp Alphaville tickets may commence once we reach capacity.
