PLEASE NOTE: Due to flooding in our auditorium at Chatham House, this event will now take place at The Royal Society - a short walk away from the Institute.

This event is now full and registration has closed. If you were unable to register, an audio recording will be available online shortly after the event.

In the last of a three-part series on the US presidential election, this event will unpack the lessons for post-election economic management in the US.

The economy has played a central role in the election campaign - with both Trump and Clinton laying out policies in which they promise to not only grow the US economy but also ensure people feel better off. Yet, beyond the rhetoric, elections always have an effect on markets and in the days following the election the new administration is likely to face pressure to put their policies into practice.

This panel will analyse the challenges that the new administration could face once in office and the lessons from the past that they should be heeding.
