Five years on from the global financial crisis, how vulnerable are we to another crash?

On 4 February, the Oxford Martin School will welcome Andy Haldane, Executive Director for Financial Stability at the Bank of England, for a talk on whether our global financial system is safe.

At the Bank of England Mr Haldane is responsible for developing bank policy on financial stability issues and the management of its Financial Stability Area. He is a member of the bank’s Financial Stability Executive Board and the new Financial Policy Committee, and also sits on various international public policy committees, economics associations, editorial boards and academic advisory committees.

Mr Haldane has written extensively on domestic and international monetary and financial stability and is co-founder of ‘Pro Bono Economics’, which aims to broker economists into projects in the charitable sector.
