World Economic Forum: Experts voice their views on the economy

Below is a good video clip from the recent World Economic Forum in Davos. The speakers are addressing the issue of how they see the global economic outlook going forward. The moderator who begins the discussion is Martin Wolf of the Financial Times, who I quoted in a recent post.

This clip comes in at one hour in length, but is definitely worth a watch because it gives you a good sense of what some very smart, very well-connected people believe. You should note that Martin Wolf himself does not believe the Obama bailout package is going to get it done.

Below are the chapter lengths to help you find specific points in the discussion you may want to hear.  Enjoy.
