Andrew Hilton Economic Update: November

Nov 02, 2020, 04:32 PM
In the November edition of his monthly economic update, Dr Andrew Hilton, director and joint founder of the Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation, delivers his regular tour of the world’s major economic developments and outlook. This month, Dr Hilton looks ahead to the impending US Presidential Election, the most polarised of its kind in recent history. We explore the significance of Vice-Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris, the likely actions of a Democrat-controlled Senate and House of Representatives, and what a Biden win could mean for a UK-US Trade Deal. We then go across the Atlantic for a view of the economic impact of the latest wave of lockdowns across Western Europe, and why this could mean an extension to Brexit negotiations.
