Overview

Dr Forbes will discuss the economic and geopolitical implications of the fluctuation of oil prices. She will also touch upon the benefits that these bring to some developed countries, such as the US, UK and eurozone, but rapidly increasing risks to others. 

The event is part of our series on US and European Perspectives on Common Economic Challenges. Conducted with the support of Bank of America Merrill Lynch, this series examines some of the principal global challenges that we face today and the potentially differing perspectives from the US and across Europe.
