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 : 2010-11-12

G20 Summit: China, the US… and the rest

Was it a G20 or a G2 summit that opened in Seoul? Trade and currency imbalances between the US and China have hogged the headlines out of the South Korean capital. If they don’t tackle those imbalances, the governor of the Bank of England predicts the next 12 months could be "even more difficult and dangerous" than the ones we've just been through.

A debate with François Picard and guests:

Ali FATEMI, Professor of Economics, American Graduate School of Business and Economics
Ann LEROUX, CEO and Founder of Ethos Paris
Robert BRUSCA, Chief Economist, Fact & Opinion Economics (FAO) (Via satellite from NYC)
Martin KHOR, Executive Director, South Center (By phone from Geneva)

A programme prepared by Yi Song and Perrine Desplats
