Eurozone Crisis: How will it affect the rest of the world?
Tuesday, 11 October 2011
6.30 pm, Houses of Parliament
While our leaders are happy to foster the illusion that they are in control of our economic destinies by setting strategies to address budget deficits, curbing government spending and attempting to provide opportunities, is the UK economy being bent, twisted and warped by economic forces beyond our control? Stephen King argues that the fundamental shift in global economic realities will have a massive impact on income wealth distribution, economic stability and market forces. He offers bleak predictions for the future and suggests our long-held assumptions about the world economy are fast breaking down.
Taimur Ahmad (Editor, Emerging Markets) will chair the event. He and Stephen King will be joined by Athar Hussain (Director, Asia Reearch Centre, London School of Economics) for a discussion afterwards.
Stephen will be signing copies of his book at the event.
Venue: Commonwealth Parliamentary Room, Westminster Hall, Houses of Parliament, London SW1A 0AA (Please allow at least 30 minutes to pass through security)
