Stephanie Flanders on the global financial crisis with top economists and George Soros.

In the second of three programmes, Stephanie Flanders discusses the global financial crisis with a panel of top economic thinkers including George Soros.

She'll be asking just who is to blame for the current economic mess we're in.

Was it the fault of the bankers - who plenty of people want to blame - or was it the economists?

And what can we learn from this, or is the problem that we simply don't learn lessons from past crises?

Stephanie Flanders will be joined in the studio to debate these questions by the billionaire investor, George Soros, Sir Howard Davies, who is the former director of the LSE, former chairman of the FSA and former deputy governor of the Bank of England, and also Dr DeAnne Julius, chairman of Chatham House and a former member of the Bank of England's monetary policy committee.

Every week sees another "make or break" summit to save the euro.

This week it is the G20 in Cannes.

But somehow the global markets always seem to be a step ahead.

In the third programme in her series of debates about the financial crisis, Stephanie Flanders asks a panel of top economic thinkers whether the world has the institutions it needs to confront today's problems.

Stephanie is joined in the studio by Willem Buiter, chief economist at Citigroup, Jim O'Neill, chairman of the asset management division of Goldman Sachs and Katinka Barysch, deputy director of the Centre for European Reform in London.

They will also discuss whether the lesson of the last few years - especially in the eurozone - is that national democracies and global markets simply do not mix.
