Matthew Bishop of The Economist gives his take on the 3 hottest issues being discussed in the hallways of the Congress Center in Davos this week:

1- The banking sector: Will we be able to regulate the banking system to help the world economy instead of destroying it?

2- Haiti: How can we rebuild Haiti as a working country?

3- International aid: How will governments deal with aid and debt as they come out of a financial crises?

Bishop also talks about the general feeling and attitude towards the world economy. Unlike the previous two years, the world leaders now agree that it is time to move forward and make the necessary changes, he says.

But are the current economic leaders capable of doing that? This is really the main thing that has to be proven in Davos, he says.

In conclusion, Matthew made a shameless promotion of his book: “The Road From Ruin”. Now available at all fine bookstores.
