As our panel forecast,
- Biden appears to have won a solid electoral college victory
- There was a “blue shift” as late-arriving postal votes leaned Democrat
- Trump has thus far refused to concede
Just about everything else has been a surprise. What will divided government mean for America? What will be on the next US president’s domestic and foreign policy agenda? Where are the political flashpoints, within the administration and beyond? What are the implications for business risks? And will Biden learn to love Boris Johnson?
As on the previous call, our panel will be:
- Sam Wilkin, Director of Political Risk Analytics, Willis Towers Watson (Washington, DC). Sam is the author or editor of five books on populism and political risk.
- Dr. Carrie Nordlund, Associate Director, Annenberg Institute, Brown University (Providence, Rhode Island). Carrie’s research interests include race and politics, voting behavior and the U.S. Census.
- Dr. Chris Oates, founder of Two Lanterns Advisory, a political risk management consultancy (Boston, Massachusetts). Chris is also a Lecturer at the Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University.
