How Charles is building a better working world

“In my work with clients and colleagues at EY, I focus on understanding how the rapidly changing nature of the economy is affecting business models and how governments respond to them. The global economy has gone through an extraordinary period of change since the financial crisis. It has never been a better time to be an economist trying to understand the changing world around us.”
