I’m sharing some information about a great initiative of the European Association for Banking  History, which is running a special lunch-hour event in Frankfurt designed the illustrate the relevance to the present of business-historical research. The event will be run in cooperation with Allianz Global Investors GmbH and will take place at their headquarters.
Tue, 25 April, 12 am
Frankfurt am Main, Germany
This talk will initiate a series of presentations that present analysis of the different episodes of populism in recent history as well as their effect on financial markets and investment returns.
  • Manuel Funke (Freie Universität Berlin), Stefan Hofrichter (AllianzGI), Moritz Schularick (University of Bonn) and Christoph Trebesch (Kiel Institute for the World Economy) bring a brand new perspective that goes beyond the political dimension in how to successfully deal with populism and the connected risks.
Just about three months after Donald Trump took office and with elections in France looming, there could not be a more timely moment for this discussion.
Discussion with the audience is planned and all participants are kindly invited to join the discussants for a networking lunch.
