Brexit: Economic, Political and Monetary Implications
Warsh served as a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve during the global financial crisis. And last year, he was asked to advise the Bank of England on its conduct of monetary policy. His proposed reformed were adopted by the Parliament. He is particularly well-positioned to explain the risks and rewards of Brexit.
Governor Warsh believes that Europe was built for survival, not success. But, Britain’s vote to leave the European Union represents a political shock, which will test its resilience. European political leaders have a window of opportunity to respond and reform. Failing that, it will be confronted with geopolitical risks to its east, possibly a less resolute ally to its west, and a weaker economic trajectory.
Central bankers will be taking actions to mitigate downside economic developments in the period ahead. But, it will be insufficient to the broader task ahead.
Warsh will offer a roadmap to the uneasy terrain.
