Have we learnt anything from the economic crisis that rocked the world only too recently? At the time of going to print, the UK was one of the few Western countries still not officially out of recession. Gillian Tett followed the crisis closely, Adam LeBor looked at how Madoff could fool so many people and Oliver James repeatedly put capitalism in the dock. Here they discussed the various facets of the crisis, structural or psychological, and investigate our responses to it and the choices we make for our future.
