Global deleveraging, rebalancing and growth are critical to corporate and government survival but it is still in motion. Are default and inflation inevitable or can growth win? How will this affect global financial systems? Are banks too big to fail? Will finance be an explosive or the fuel of growth? As finance is a pillar of the global economy, this interactive discussion will address the future of finance, investment, debt and capital markets.
