Evan Davis
This week Evan looks at market corrections.
‘Correction’ is a nice word. It makes one think of marking essays, or straightening out a steering wheel. Unfortunately when it comes to markets, ‘correction’ can be a euphemism for ‘crash’.

We chat with our guests about the psychology of correction, and when a downturn turns into a panic. The panel assesses the politicians in this remarkable week. Also how are companies – from law firms to advertising agencies – preparing for the future in this time of economic gloom.

Our guests this week:

Mick Buckley
President and chief executive, CNBC Europe

Stuart Popham
Senior Partner, Clifford Chance

Duncan Tait
Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Unisys

Robin Wight
President, Engine Group
About the programme
