Webinar: The Pandemic and Populism
The current economic crisis offers an opportunity to fix inequalities in the global economy, and Eric Lonergan, a macro hedge fund manager at M&G Investments, has identified some starting points. In his latest book, Angrynomics, Lonergan analyzes ways to reduce income disparities and reverse the rising tide of populism. This interactive webinar will apply concepts from the book to offer ideas for creating a more inclusive economic system. Lonergan will also discuss how investors should think about asset allocation strategies in response to current, unprecedented changes.
