World Cup 2022: Predicting the Winner Via Economics

England will make it to the final of the World Cup on December 18 only to lose to Argentina, according to an economist who correctly predicted the winners of the 2014 and 2018 tournaments. 

Joachim Klement, an investment analyst at Liberum Capital, stands by predictions he made in September, before the competition began, despite “sweating a lot” while watching Saudi Arabia beat Argentina in the group stages of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
