In order to better understand the structural or systemic challenges of the current global economic and financial order, and explore adequate policy responses, the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) will convene a special session to brief Member States on the current economic and financial situation. On 7 February, distinguished economists provided their views and perspectives on the present situation and future prospects. Speakers will include Professor Peter Diamond, Professor of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and 2010 Nobel Economics Laureate; and Professor Carmen Reinhart, Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics.
