How can we avoid another crisis?
We’ll hear from this expert panel about how another global financial crisis can be avoided, ten years after the first. Rather than focusing narrowly on the financial sector, this discussion will look at the role of the wider financial system, considering a range of factors including debt levels, the need for redistribution, and a ‘race to the bottom’ on tax and regulation.
