Chemistry and the Economy: The Brexit, Challenges of Over-Supply and the End of Bank Stimulus

July 21, 2016 @ 2:00pm ET

A puzzle with the EU and British flag

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union (Brexit) is causing major upheaval in financial markets as investors rush to supposedly “safe havens”.  This is highlighting the underlying slowdown in demand growth caused by globally ageing populations.  What does this mean for the chemical and pharma industry?  Can we still rely on the supply-driven strategies of the past?  Or do we need to reinvent our business and investment strategies?  Join Paul Hodges of International eChem and former Chair of the ACS Board William Carroll as they return to share an update on the factors affecting the market and what these mean for you.

What You Will Learn

  • The likely impact of Brexit on US and global financial markets
