Real Time Intelligence: United States Live interactive conference call

It barely needs saying that Donald Trump’s presidency has been disruptive, both at home and abroad. In the international arena he has challenged allies, most notably by taking the US out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and the Paris Climate Agreement. Yet he has also reached out to rivals like China on North Korea. Domestically, his government is making progress slashing regulation, but faces a tougher fight on healthcare and tax reform, as well as on its infrastructure plans. Meanwhile, Mr Trump faces a heightened threat of impeachment as investigations intensify.

Please join a call on June 14th in which there will be an interview of Global Economist, Mike Jakeman, assessing the Trump administration’s performance to date and forecasts for political and economic developments in the US. Amid all the noise, what should investors and observers be focusing on? How likely is it that the president will achieve his goals—or will he even finish a full term in office?

This will also be an opportunity to ask questions, and test the view. The call will last around 30 minutes.

Speakers: Duncan Innes-Ker, Regional Director, Asia Country Analysis and Mike Jakeman, Global Economist

South Korea: Making up for lost time

With a resounding electoral victory, the recent election of Moon Jae-in as South Korea’s new president has raised significant hope for change. But the president faces major challenges at home and abroad, including longstanding issues with the domestic economy, as well as a tense situation with North Korea as missile and nuclear tests continue apace.

So what can the new president realistically hope to achieve in office?

This whitepaper will assess the prospects of policy change under the new administration:

  • How successful will the president be at fulfilling his campaign pledges, including curbing the influence of the country’s predominant family controlled business conglomerates (chaebol), engineering new drivers of growth and tackling labour market reform?
  • Will there be a successful return to the ‘sunshine’ policy of engagement with North Korea?

Please click here to download this free whitepaper.

French elections 2017: Analysis and outlook – 11 May 2017 webinar invitation

On Sunday May 7th the French will go to the polls once more to choose their next president. The candidates of both mainstream parties have now been eliminated, leaving an unprecedented contest between two outsiders.

The implications of the choice between pro-European centrist Emmanuel Macron and the Eurosceptic far-right leader, Marine Le Pen, make this arguably the most important vote of 2017. Even after this decision is made, the uncertainty over how France will be governed will continue, with the legislative elections in June likely to be unusually unpredictable—and key to the policymaking outlook.

On Thursday May 11th, The Economist Intelligence Unit will host a webinar to present the analysis of the result and what it will mean for France and for Europe. Questions to be addressed will include:

  • Will the business environment improve?
  • How will France’s decision affect the Brexit negotiations and the outlook for the EU?
  • How much of the government’s agenda is likely to be implemented?
  • Will the election result affect the economic outlook?

Join the webinar on Thursday May 11th 2:00pm – 2.45pm British Summer Time (9.00am – 9.45am Eastern Daylight Time) to hear the latest analysis and outlook from France analyst, Emily Mansfield, and to ask questions.
