The collapse of Lehman Brothers on September 15, 2008 set off the most acute crisis in the history of capitalism since 1929. Why was Lehmans not saved? Why did its collapse have the massive impact it did? And a year on, how is the capitalist world coping?" Andrew Gamble is a professor at Cambridge University. Will Hutton is chief executive of the Work Foundation. Danny Quah is professor of Economics at LSE. This event is organised in association with the European Consortium for Political Research.
