Event description

Description

The huge falls on global stock markets of the last few weeks are evidence of mounting fears about the prospects for Western economies. Investors worry that the United States and the Eurozone lack the political will to tackle the black holes in their public finances.

With growth slowing alarmingly in the West, can fast-growing economies such as India, China, Brazil and Russia provide the impetus and demand to keep the global economy on track, or will they too be dragged down into slower growth, or even into another world recession? Put baldly, can the BRICs provide an international rescue?

The Commonwealth Journalists Association (UK) and Commonwealth Advisory Bureau invite you to a public discussion:

Date: Monday 19 September 2011

Venue: Chancellor's Hall, Senate House, University of London, Malet St, WC1E 7HU

Time: 6.30-8.30pm

Our panel of experts will analyse the problems and discuss what the BRICs nations can achieve.

Chair:

Lesley Curwen, BBC reporter and presenter

Panellists:

Dr Ehtisham Ahmed, Senior Visiting Fellow, LSE Asia Research Centre, economist and author

Lord Desai, Labour Peer, economist and author

Charles MacKinnon, Chief Investment Officer, Thurleigh Investment Managers

Christine Shields, Head of Country Risk Research, Standard Chartered Bank

Karen Ward, Senior Global Economist, HSBC

Dr Linda Yueh, Economist, Broadcaster and Author
