The fall and rise of central banking

Howard Davies, former director of the London School of Economics, talks to Romesh Vaitilingam about his book co-authored with David Green, ‘Banking on the Future: The Fall and Rise of Central Banking’. Among other things, they discuss the cost-effectiveness of central banks, the characteristics of an ideal central bank governor, and potential reform of the voting structure at the European Central Bank. The interview was recorded in London in June 2010.
