Has globalisation had its day? A perspective from the US with Alex Sanchez, CEO of the Florida Bankers' Association
Setting Brexit aside (if possible) for at least one evening, economic and political nationalism seems to be on the rise across the world, overturning the accomplishments of three decades of globalisation - although not everyone would agree that these were universally positive. "America First" and the "Chimerica" trade war are perhaps the most obvious manifestations. What effects are heightened uncertainty and risk, and the rising costs of tariffs and other trade barriers having on banks, business and individuals? And what comes next - more Trump, or post-Trump?
Also Dr Peter Moles (Senior Lecturer in Finance; University of Edinburgh Business School) will be a panellist on the evening.
Alex serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Florida Bankers Association (FBA), the leading voice for Florida’s banking industry. Alex represents and advocates for Florida’s banking industry before all legislative and regulatory bodies in Tallahassee and Washington, bringing great insight into banking and business matters drawn from his extensive experience on Capitol Hill and K Street, and with US banking leaders in their boardrooms.
Alex is a regular guest on CNBC’s Closing Bell show hosted by Maria Bartiromo, on the Fox Business News Network and on Bloomberg TV and radio.
