Capital New York event: Are we being served? The global economy and the financial press
As we know from each new iteration of the European debt crisis, and from every aftershock of the Arab Spring, America's fortunes, and policies, are driven to a large extent by what happens elsewhere. The U.S. economy does not exist in a vaccum; it is part of a global economy.
But does the mainstream American press treat it as such, when covering global finance? Is the media doing its job keeping us informed, and steering the conversation productively?
Join Capital and our partner, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, as we explore how the global financial press interprets these crucial developments around the world for its audience, and ask what drives the American media to cover the international economy the way it does.
