As part of our sponsorship of last year’s Kilkenomics, we have some exclusive video footage of David McWilliams in conversation with some of the festival’s key speakers for use on our website. Following our interview with Yanis Varoufakis late last year, we now have a video of Martin Wolf, chief economics commentator at the Financial Times.

As regular readers of his column will know, Martin has been writing with clarity and precision on the causes and lingering after-effects of the global financial crisis for many years. As one of the most influential writers on the global economic scene, we are delighted to present this exclusive footage to you.

…on global economic growth issues

In our first clip, Martin discusses the lasting impact of the series of big credit bubbles that have impacted the world’s major economies over the last 30 years, and why they continue to hamper the growth outlook.

…on the future of the eurozone

Martin has been consistently questioning of policy-makers handling of the eurozone crisis in recent years and cautious on the region’s outlook. Although he recognises that the cost of break-up would be ‘colossal’, here he talks about the forces that have thus far held it together and the extraneous factors that could, ultimately, endanger the eurozone project.

…on what’s left in the economic policy tool box & the risk of doing nothing

In our third clip, Martin discusses the lack of options available to the world’s policy makers and the risks that could be posed if conventional policy conventionally fails.
