Comparing the European and US Economies After the Crisis

2 March 2016 - 10:30 to 11:45

Chatham House, London


Klaus Regling, Managing Director, European Stability Mechanism; CEO, European Financial Stability Facility



Nearly eight years on from the 2008 financial crash, fears that the global economy could be heading toward another crisis are growing. Concerns that economic recovery could be derailed have contributed to great uncertainty among investors on both sides of the Atlantic. At this critical moment, it is unclear whether the global financial system will be able to cope with another crash. Mr Regling will draw on his considerable experience to address the state of both the US and European economies in the wake of the crisis.

This event is part of the US and the Americas Programme series on US and European Perspectives on Common Economic Challenges. Conducted with the support of the Bank of New York Mellon, this series examines some of the principal global challenges that we face today and potentially differing perspectives from across Europe and the US.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
