Ten years after the global financial crisis in 2008, the world economy at last seems to be enjoying a robust recovery. But reasonable growth has only followed massive monetary and fiscal stimulus, and major threats to sustainable growth remain. Lord Adair Turner, Chairman of The Institute for New Economic Thinking and former Chairman of the U.K.’s Financial Services Authority, will explore the potential drivers of future instability, and consider whether despite reasonable growth this year, the world should face the challenge of potential secular stagnation. 


Lord Adair Turner is Chairman of The Institute for New Economic Thinking since 2013. Prior to joining the Institute, he chaired the United Kingdom Financial Services Authority from 2008 to 2013, and played a leading role in the redesign of the global banking and shadow banking regulation as Chairman of the International Financial Stability Board’s major policy committee. A cross-bench member of the House of Lords since 2005, Lord Turner served as the first Chairman of the Climate Change Committee (2008-2012), and chaired the Pensions Commission (2003-2006) and Low Pay Commission (2002-2006). His latest book Between Debt and the Devil was published by Princeton in 2015 and has been translated into Chinese. He is a Senior Fellow at the Centre for Financial Studies in Frankfurt, and Visiting Professor at the London School of Economics and Cass Business School. More recently, Lord Turner was appointed Visiting Fellow at the People’s Bank of China School of Finance at Tsinghua University and Visiting Professor at the International Center for Islamic Finance in Kuala Lumpur. He was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society in 2016.
