Henley BusinessClass - Kristiina Helenius and Roger Martin-Fagg - Henley, Helsinki, Suomi

BusinessClass 23.11.2016

New forces at play โ€“ Where is the global economy headed?

Keynote speakers: Roger Martin-Fagg, Henley Business School and Kristiina Helenius, Amcham 

In June 2016, the British narrowly voted to leave the EU based on significant misinformation. There will be elections in Italy, France and Germany in the next twelve months โ€“ the result is likely to be anti-EU. In November 2016, the Americans elect Donald Trump as president. The financial markets are reacting and decision makers need to cope with several open questions.

The electorate are blaming the EU for influences that come from the rest of the world. In the US, the presidential election has caused a debate on democracy. What is happening in the world? Is democracy broken? In Finland, as well as in other parts of the world, the leaders of business need to navigate in uncertainty.  

In this Henley BusinessClass, Roger Martin-Fagg from Henley Business School will provide insights into how economy really works, what has led us to where we are and also elaborate the possible futures of the EU. Kristiina Helenius, CEO of Amcham and a veteran of country branding and Finlandโ€™s competitiveness, will shed light on how Finland fares today globally. Investment flows from North America to Europe, and the Nordics are drying up. At the same time, Finland is developing a hub strategy for logistics. Other forces affecting us are nordification, urbanisation, losing of foothold regionally and Russian sanctions. Time to take a closer look at where the opportunities are today.

The BusinessClass will examine the following topics:

  • How the economy really works
  • How banks create and destroy money
  • The impact of China on the West
  • The future of the EU
  • How Finland competes in the global markets
  • Nordification โ€“ Regional headquarters
  • What are Finlandโ€™s strengths, where is Finland underperforming?
