Guest expert Edward Hugh, a macroeconomist of British origin who has lived in Catalonia, Spain for over 25 years joins Dennis Tubbergen this week. Mr. Hugh joined us from his home in Spain and provided us with a first-hand account as to economic conditions in Europe and how they might affect US investors.

Born in Liverpool Edward Hugh is a macroeconomist of British origin who has lived in Catalonia for over 25 years. Hugh, who studied economics at the LSE in the late sixties before going on to do Masters and Doctoral studies in Manchester, is an expert on the impact of demographic change and migratory processes on economic growth. His work came to the attention of a wider international public following the publication of a New York Times article highlighting his blogging activity and his anticipation of the Euro Area crisis.

He has recently published a book on the Spanish economy (┬┐Adios a la crisis?, Deusto 2014), and is a frequent contributor to the Catalan press.
