In today’s Debate, we turn the clock back 100 years. In 1917, the British pound ruled the markets, World War I brought Europe to its knees and the US embarked on the road to global superpower. Tsarist Russia was on the edge of a Bolshevik Revolution and the Ottoman Empire was the “sick man of Europe”. A changing world order then, and perhaps a changing world order now too following the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s vows to “Make America Great Again”.
