In a very special edition of the Brewin Podcast, Brewin’s Research Director, Ben Gutteridge, speaks to John Emerson, the US Ambassador to Germany under the Obama administration. Over a really fascinating 25 minutes, John offers his insights on the front runners for the Democrat candidacy, how they might then take on Trump in the campaign trail, the impact impeachment threats may have and, ultimately, whether they might be able to win.

Given John’s experience of working the German’s establishment, we also take some time to understand whether a mused fiscal stimulus is coming down the pike there, and the goodwill that remains to strike a Brexit deal with Prime Minster Johnson.
