Is globalisation working? While many would argue for the benefits of the free movement of people, goods and ideas, a mass movement has grown around the view that globalisation is detrimental to democracy, the environment, the world's poor and the stability of the global economy. How much of this can be blamed on mismanagement by the WTO, IMF and World Bank? Could globalisation ever be made to work for a majority of the world's people? Tonight's speakers consider whether - and how - globalisation might be rethought. Speakers include: Joseph Stiglitz, former chief economist at the World Bank and advisor to Clinton, now a fierce critic of real-world globalisation; Susan George, scholar, writer and activist, V. P. of Attac-France and Clive Crook, deputy editor of The Economist. In the chair: Frances Cairncross, management editor of The Economist and author of The Death of Distance.
