What links will they make between the rise of China as a mega-industrial nation, buying huge amounts of dollars, keeping their own currency low, and costs of borrowing low for developed nations.

Think about the future as history....

Future of Fund Management and Banking

Urgent ethical questions. Over the last decade I have lectured to thousands of fund managers from many different institutions including banks, responsible for hundreds of billions of actively managed investments, mainly entrusted to them by pension funds.  The global economic crisis highlighted a number of fundamental problems within the industry, that had been there for many years, and remain unresolved.  Issues such as over-charging, low performance, lack of confidence of fund managers in their own funds.  Restoring trust has to be an urgent major priority.
