The IRF podcast is delighted to be joined by Helen Thomas, founder and CEO of Blonde Money. Helen joins us to discuss Biden, Brexit and future pandemic disruption.
With almost twenty years of experience, Helen cuts through the noise to reveal the political and economic events that drive financial market changes. The podcast looks ahead into 2021 and 2022 to reveal the long-term effects of COVID-19, analysing how human consumption patterns have been fundamentally altered and questioning the effects this will cause on the economy’s future functionality. Helen determines that a post-Brexit U.K.’s success remains with our political leaders as they navigate ongoing COVID-19 vaccine rollout and completing EU regulatory policy. Those in power are responsible for developing on the inbuilt advantages the country has to ensure long-term success. Biden’s first two years in office were met with apprehension within the podcast as Helen reveals the Senate’s 50/50 split may only encourage further party divides. This constraint is predicted to delay policy-making, heightening tensions and promoting a ‘veto’ power voting system as Senators push for individual agendas.
