Will the US election lead to a global financial crisis?


Of all the issues raised by this election that could have an impact on the rest of the world, the economy is the biggest – and the scariest. Economic decisions in the US can have an outsized influence elsewhere: if the US is motoring along nicely, so are the rest of us; if the wheels fall off there, the crash will be felt elsewhere too. Monocle’s Steve Bloomfield is joined by Harvard economics professor Ken Rogoff, economist and broadcaster Linda Yueh and Martin Sandbu of the ‘Financial Times’ to discuss the potential ramifications of a Trump and Clinton presidency.
