The New Economic Reality, an event series from the Financial Times
Join the FT for a series of events examining the world’s new economic reality in light of Covid-19 and major global political and social change. Over the past year, the FT has been leading the conversation around a new agenda of responsible capitalism during a time of crisis. This series of events adds another dimension to the debate, inviting readers to hear directly from FT journalists on important global issues.
Do Americans feel like they are better off than they were four years ago?
Our next event, held in association with the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, co-sponsor of the monthly FT-Peterson poll, will offer an analysis of U.S. voter sentiment towards the economy and how the country’s fiscal and economic outlook has been impacted by the pandemic just days before the election.
KEY TALKING POINTS
- What does the data from the FT-Peterson poll tell us about how Americans are feeling about the economy over the past 12 months?
- What is US voter sentiment about the economy just days before the election?
- How has our fiscal situation changed in response to the pandemic and what are solutions that can help right our fiscal trajectory once the pandemic is behind us?
