“The fact cash exists, doesn’t make it useful” was the parting thought of Stephen King, renowned economist and author who spoke at the first of our Invested for the Future virtual events on Thursday 25 February.
The Future of Money was a thought-provoking discussion chaired by Samantha Simmonds, host of Sunday Politics. From the future of interest rates and inflation to the forthcoming Budget, Stephen King also gave us his considered economic view on hot topics such as the long-term impact of mounting government borrowing, the future of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, plus the likelihood and repercussions of becoming a completely cashless society.
