Dave Ramsden: The future of the UK economy

The Institute for Policy and Engagement brings you another instalment of its public lectures series.

We are delighted that our upcoming speaker is going to be Dave Ramsden, Deputy Governor for Markets & Banking at the Bank of England.

Following a turbulent year for the economy, Dave will give his views on the UK economy in the wake of the Global Pandemic and the UK’s departure from the EU.

The Institute’s lecture series offers you the chance to hear from people who can offer insights into a complex and rapidly changing world that defies traditional analysis, and who can reflect on what it means to be an “expert” and to build trust in a less deferential, sceptical and often polarised environment.

The talk will be followed by Q&A online via Teams Live.
