Sir Richard Lambert, chancellor of the University of Warwick and former member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, will deliver a public lecture, “Ripping Across the Atlantic: How the Eurozone Crisis Will Affect the U.S.,” on Wednesday, October 24, 6 p.m. at New York University’s Hemmerdinger Hall, Silver Center (100 Washington Square East/enter at 31 Washington Place).

The event is free and open to the public. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please email events@warwick.ac.uk or call 212.998.8100 for more information. Subway Lines: 6 (Astor Place); N, R (8th Street).

Analysts have maintained that the Eurozone crisis has profound implications for the U.S. American banks are closely intertwined with those of Europe, and the impact of a banking shock would not stop at the east coast of the Atlantic. In addition, they add, U.S. companies have large direct investments in Western Europe, and transatlantic trade is important to them. A prolonged slowdown in Europe would leave a mark on the U.S. economy. Experts add that Europe is a major strategic partner of the U.S., through NATO and a string of bilateral relationships, raising questions about the nature of these ties in the future.

Lambert was appointed chancellor of the University of Warwick in March 2008 and is the former director-general of the Confederation of British Industry. He was editor of the Financial Times from 1991 to 2001. He served as a member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee from 2003 until 2006. He was knighted in 2011 for service to business.

The lecture is part of the VandeLinde Lecture series, which was established to honor Professor David VandeLinde, who served as the fourth vice chancellor of the University of Warwick.
