StratCast XVII

Jul 09, 2020, 11:37 AM
Welcome to the seventeenth episode of StratCast. In what is a hugely important week for the UK economy, Sophia Gaston, Seumas Kerr CBE and Tom Cargill begin by discussing the Chancellor's Summer budget, with a particular focus on the importance and feasibility of the retrofitting programme, before taking a look at the candidates for WTO Director-General, in what is a somewhat febrile atmosphere for the organisation. Sophia Gaston then interviews Joseph Sternberg of the Wall Street Journal on US foreign policy, particularly its relations with China, and the potential ramifications of a Biden presidency, before they wrap up with a look ahead at the programmes of The D Group, The British Foreign Policy Group, and British Expertise International.
