On Thursday 4th May we attended an absorbing BAB breakfast 100-Day Briefing led by Lucy O’Carroll, Chief Economist of Aberdeen Asset Management.
It’s only natural that expectations about the start of Donald Trump’s presidency were high.
The recent US election was so protracted that the electorate was waiting with a certain bated breath by the time the new President took the oath of allegiance. If President Obama’s catchphrase was “Yes we can”, President Trump’s is more of a “Yes we will”. Trump has taken to the task of President with enthusiasm, but perhaps not the aplomb of a seasoned politician familiar with the nuance of getting things done on Capitol Hill. Arguably one could say he has generated more heat than light. The morning’s debate was an exhilarating start to the day with an impressive expert panel from Cicero Group, Colliers International, Embassy of the United States of America, Squire Patton Biggs and PwC.
