August 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join Stephen King, HSBC’s Senior Economic Adviser and successful author, when he provides an expert analysis of lessons learned about inflation gleaned from over 800 years of data.


Stephen’s latest book, Grave New World: The End of Globalization, the Return of History, was published by Yale University Press in May 2017. Later that year, Grave New World was longlisted for the Financial Times McKinsey Business Book of the Year prize and thereafter picked as a “book of the year” by the Financial Times. It has since been translated into multiple languages including Mandarin under the title The World is Not Flat.

Stephen’s previous book, When the Money Runs Out (Yale), was chosen as a “book of the year” by the Financial Times, The Economist and The Times. Stephen writes a regular column in the London Evening Standard, has penned articles for many leading newspapers worldwide and frequently appears on television and radio.

Stephen sits on the Council of Management of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR). Between 2015 and the 2017 General Election, Stephen was a special adviser to the House of Commons Treasury Committee. Stephen’s career began at H.M. Treasury, where he was an economic adviser within the UK civil service. He studied at New College, Oxford. In his spare time, he plays the piano.
