Event in association with

Former governor of the Bank of England Lord Mervyn King discusses what we have learned from the financial crisis of 2008 and where the global economy goes from here, in conversation with the editor of the Financial Times Lionel Barber.

King was governor of the Bank of England between 2003 and 2013 and played a central role in dealing with the financial crisis of 2008. He argued that he and other Western central bankers helped to prevent a great depression by cutting interest rates to zero. He was also scathing about the banking industry and its actions post-crisis. But what have we learned from the crisis? And where is the global economy heading now? Is another financial meltdown possible? What can we do to avoid it?

King retired from the Bank of England in 2013 and has since sat in the House of Lords as a crossbencher.

Here he talks to Barber, editor of the Financial Times and a former foreign correspondent for the newspaper in Washington, Brussels and New York.
