Robert Peston

It's been ten years since the big financial crash in 2007/08 and there are three key questions to ask: what lessons have we learned; what steps have we taken to reform the system; and how can we deliver a fairer, more resilient and sustainable economy?

Robert Peston was the journalist who broke the story of Northern Rock's emergency appeal for funds, and covered at close-hand the resulting run on the bank, its collapse, and the global crash that followed.

In this talk he will be reflecting on those momentous events, and the role played by the politicians, bankers and regulators.

What has been the lasting legacy of the crisis? And have we really learned the lessons?
