On Tuesday, February 26, 2019, Claire Jones, Financial Times Frankfurt Bureau Chief, followed an invitation of Frankfurt School students to talk about Brexit and its threats and opportunities for the Eurozone as well as the United Kingdom. The event was organised by Frankfurt School’s student initiative FS Economy and Politics. They regularly invite guest speakers to talk about current events and the intersection of politics and business.
Claire Jones started the Q&A part of the evening right away, prompting a lively discussion with the audience. With a diverse group of students, the questions reigned from the political to the personal, with many showing shock and incredulity that it could have come to Brexit at all.
