Moderated by: Liam Halligan, Economics Commentator, Telegraph Media Group, Editor-at-Large, Business New Europe
What causes financial shocks, and what can policymakers do to reduce our vulnerability to such events?
Why were responses to the recent financial crisis insufficient, making it almost certain that recovery will be too weak and unbalanced and still bigger crises will emerge in the future?
How are fundamental shifts in the world economy driven by financial liberalization, technology, and aging populations revealed in globalization, rising inequality, and weak investment in high-income economies?
Why is the global financial system still very fragile, and why are further radical reforms essential for a secure future?

What are the economic implications of the public and private debt burden in Europe and their potential impact on society?
