The uncertain global economic environment,coupled with the policy drift,have been top of the mind for a while now. Issues that Martin Wolf,chief economics commentator with the Financial Times,has closely tracked through his widely read columns.
Recently,he wrote about the inability of leaders to provide economic stability and the risks that the world would face in 2012. He also feels that when both the developed and emerging economies are weaker than they were in 2008,their ability to respond to growing risks will be weak.
On Thursday,a select audience of the financial capitals movers and shakers will get an opportunity to quiz Wolf at the latest edition of Express Adda,a series of conversations with people at the centre of change. Wolf will share the stage with Adi Godrej,the chairman of the Godrej Group,who is also not known to be shy of speaking his mind on the political and economic turbulence the country is facing.
Having started his career at the World Bank in 1971,Wolf left it to become director of studies at the Trade Policy Research Centre in London and joined FT in 1987. Wolf also has several books to his credit,including Why Globalisation Works and Fixing Global Finance.
