When Christine Lagarde speaks, it’s worth listening. As supremo of the International Monetary Fund, she has a desk at the centre of the world’s financial systems. If national leaders and corporate CEOs are pawns in the global game, Lagarde is queen of the chessboard. Tonight, she offers a tele-friendly view on the challenges facing the global economy. Can youth unemployment in Europe be brought down? Is the Euro crisis over? Is inflation or deflation a bigger risk for countries like Britain? We probably shouldn’t expect clear-cut answers, but the nuances of Lagarde’s speech will be picked over for signals.

David Dimbleby hosts the event named in his father’s honour.


Christine Lagarde, the first woman to head the International Monetary Fund, delivers the 38th annual lecture in memory of broadcaster Richard Dimbleby, in which she explains her thoughts on the challenges facing the global economy. Introduced by David Dimbleby from the Guildhall in London.
