THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2010-10-29

Kerviel Conviction – Bankers: the End of the Rogue?

Does the conviction of Jérôme Kerviel for single-handedly squandering 4.9 billion euros make him the poster child for a banking system gone crazy? Perhaps, but he might also be a scapegoat for a system where reform might be stalling.

A debate with Melissa Bell and guests:

Bill STEWART, Instructor of International Business Administration at the American University of Paris
Raphaël KAHANE, France 24 Business Editor
Larry McDONALD, Managing Director of Pangea Capital Management and Fomer Vice-President, Lehman Brothers - Author of “A Colossal Failure of Common Sense: The Inside Story of the Collapse of Lehman Brothers” (Oct. 2010) (via satellite from New York, USA)

Programme prepared by Yi Song and Perrine Desplats
