The programme analyzes the causes of the problems, talking to some of the world's most respected financial thinkers including Niall Ferguson and Joseph Stiglitz.

The programme also looks at how emerging markets have been affected by the financial crisis, with a focus on India, and what plans its leaders have to help the country's economy in 2009.

We will interview Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen and highly respected financial heavyweight Ashok Wadhwa and discuss the impact of the crisis on the country's property sector and graduate school campuses.

Ending the programme, we focus on the role of leadership, looking at what world leaders must do to help alleviate the problems of the financial crisis.
