Recorded on 9 October 2012 at Old Theatre, Old Building

Since 2008, we have experienced the worst financial crisis and recession since the 1930’s. What challenges does this pose to the intellectual foundations of monetary policy? Do we need a new approach?

Mervyn King is the Governor of the Bank of England. Before joining the Bank he was Professor of Economics at the LSE, and a founder of the Financial Markets Group.
