NES is presenting a discussion on world economics featuring Irish economist, columnist, and TV presenter, David McWilliams. The discussion will be moderated by Gerard Michael MacCarthy, founder of Irish Week

The discussion will include an overview of the global economic situation:

  • How Russia is seen in the West from an economic point of view.
  • Trump’s America and its effect on global economics.
  • Brexit – what is it, what does it mean for the UK, for Ireland, for the European idea, for the rest of the world.
