Former vice-president of the World Bank Professor Ian Goldin and economist Stephen King look at the fallout from globalisation.

In his book Age of Discovery, co-authored with Chris Kutarna, Goldin argues that society is grappling with rapid change and that politics and institutions are not evolving fast enough to keep up.  Meanwhile, in Grave New World, King explains why globalisation is being rejected and warns that a world ruled by nations with conflicting aims could risk economic and political conflict and result in a race to the bottom.

Goldin is founding director and senior fellow of the Oxford Martin School and professor of globalisation and development at the University of Oxford. He is a former vice-president of the World Bank and former chief executive of the development Bank of South Africa and advisor to Nelson Mandela. His books include The Pursuit of Development, The Butterfly Defect, Is the Planet Full?, and Development: A Very Short Introduction. He also appears at another event to discuss Age of Discovery.

King is a senior economic adviser at HSBC and an adviser to the House of Commons treasury committee. King’s second book, When the Money Runs Out, was chosen as a book of the year by the FT, the Economist and the Times.

Discussions are chaired by political economist and journalist Will Hutton, principal of Hertford College and a former editor-in-chief of The Observer.

This event is part of a series on leadership sponsored by HSBC.
