David McWilliams

Author, Journalist, Lecturer, Broadcaster and Documentary Maker

An uncompromising thinker, with a relaxed, confident and entertaining style, David was voted the most influential economist in the UK and Ireland in 2015.

He is a regular conference and keynote speaker at international financial conferences where he speaks about trends in the global economy and how we might profit from them. He speaks to businesses and industrial groups on how the trends in growth, currencies and financial markets will uniquely affect them.

Consistently accurate in his forecasts, David McWilliams was the only economist in Ireland who accurately forecast a strong UK Brexit vote. He was also the first economist to identify the Irish boom as nothing more than a credit bubble, warning of its collapse and the consequences for the country. His objective is to make economics as widely available and easily understandable on as many platforms as possible.
