Talking Money: The economic consequences of Brexit
An audio interview with economist Peter Warburton
The UK’s recent vote to leave the EU shocked many – but just how much of the market reaction since then makes sense or is likely to persist in light of underlying economic factors? And what long-term impact will Brexit have on the UK as an investment destination – or on the Eurozone and the wider global economy? Economist Peter Warburton, one of the few to foresee the global debt crisis, shares his thoughts in the latest Money Makers’ podcast, the first of a series about the likely impact of Brexit.
