Jason Karaian, Global Finance Editor, Quartz
October 4, 2019
A London-based business journalist who has been living through Brexit will tell us the story of the run-up to the Brexit referendum, the uncertain aftermath following the vote, the convoluted divorce negotiations before the UK’s official exit, and the uncertain transition period to a new relationship with the bloc it belonged to for more than 40 years. Has the promise of the “Leavers” been fulfilled? Have the warnings of the “Remainers” been realized? What lies ahead for the British economy, its trade relationships, geopolitical status, and much else besides?
