The Paris attacks will impact the French economy in the near term but activity is likely to remain resilient, according to a leading expert.
IHS global insight chief European and UK economist Howard Archer has compared the most recent attack in the French capital – which killed 129 people – to previous incidents in both London and Madrid.
Archer said experience from those events showed the economic impact is likely to be “limited and temporary”.
The infamous Guy Fawkes belonged to a group who planned the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605. The plotters hid a large amount of gunpowder in a cellar beneath the House of Lords in an assassination attempt on the King. However, the authorities received a ‘tip off’ and searched the Palace of Westminster in the early hours of the 5th of November where they found Fawkes guarding the gunpowder.
