Big Economic Review of the Year 2019

Each December, we try to bring together some of the greatest minds in business and economics to review the year just past. Unfortunately they’re never available. However, whilst you’re stuck with me, Richard Ramsey, we have been able to enlist the fantastic Stephen Kelly, Chief Executive of Manufacturing NI, and the incomparable Richard Johnston of Ulster University’s Economic Policy Centre to consider the good, the bad and the ugly of the NI, UK and global economies in 2019 and to speculate about who might be the economic villains of 2020.

Big Economic Quiz of the Year 2018

Listen back to 2018’s review:

What were the economic highlights and lowlights of 2018? What will be good, bad and ugly in 2019? Who will be next year’s economic villain? What word would you use to sum up what you expect to see in the next 12 months? These and many other questions about the Northern Ireland and global economy’s are asked and discussed in our new podcast, which we’ve boldly called the Big Economic Quiz of the Year.
