“It’s the economy, stupid” is an often-quoted phrase first used by a strategist in Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 presidential campaign against incumbent George H. W. Bush.

Conor Lambe, Danske’s Chief Economist will talk us through the impact of 2020’s fall in output, and presents his predictions for when the economy will start to recover, what the economic indicators are saying and is it too early to talk about “green shoots”.
