Airmic LIVE is back - this is the first in our new series - but note the time as we welcome a panel of speakers who are US-based.

The “most important election in US history”, says US President Donald Trump. Whether you agree or not, it promises to be dramatic. It is far from clear whether the result will be decided by voters, the courts, or other means; far from clear that both sides will accept the outcome; and far from clear how a polarised and politically-mobilised American public would react to a disputed vote count. 

With the added challenge of the President and his wife testing positive for Covid-19, join our panel of experts in US politics and political risk for a discussion of possible scenarios arising from the election, and the public policy and business risk implications of a Biden or Trump victory.
