When empires fall: Lessons from history

Tuesday 29 March 2022 | 17:00 - 18:00 | Webinar

This session is brought to you by CFA UK’s Fixed Income special interest group

We are potentially seeing the end of the US hegemony and the dollar.

The philosopher George Santana once said “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. The lessons from history are often ignored in modern economic and financial analysis. 

In this webinar former trader, hedge fund manager and author David Murrin will draw on his research in  Breaking the Code of History  to explain why he believes we are seeing decline of both the United States and Europe. Why covid and the Ukraine has likely accelerated this and we are about to enter a much more volatile and dangerous world.

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
