The global economy and financial markets are in turmoil but what are the reasons for this 'crisis', who is responsible for the credit crunch and what can be done to redress the balance?

Speakers include George Alogoskoufis, Greek minister of economy and finance; Fabrizio Saccomanni, director general of the Bank of Italy; Howard Davies, LSE director; Philipp Hildebrand, vice chairman of the governing board of the National Bank of Switzerland; Alessandro Profumo, chief executive officer of UniCredit Group; and Robert J Shiller, economics professor at Yale University.
