Vice President and Head of Network, Financial and Private Sector Development, The World Bank & International Finance Corporation, Washington, D.C. Abstract
Our approach to the idea of  responsibility should not be about fixing blame for failures, but seeking a balanced approach toward accountability and taking a forward-looking attitude to problem-solving. Our goal should be to re-establish fairness and adopt the appropriate level of burden-sharing in financial markets. Speaking from the global perspective of the World Bank Group, I believe there are lessons to be learned from the developing world. The work of the FSB, where I serve as the World Bank representative, is also moving in the right direction. Ultimately, global finance is about generating growth and jobs.  Responsibility then translates into financing the economy's job-creating sectors. The developing world once again offers ideas on how to approach competitiveness and the employment-generation challenge.
President, NASDAQ OMX Stockholm Abstract
I will talk about my experience from fiscal and financial crisis learned during his time as a policy maker in Sweden, EU and IMF. From this I will draw some conclusions that guides me in my present position as the President of the Swedish Stock Exchange, NASDAQ OMX Stockholm. Should regulation be global or national? Are national policy makers and regulators still relevant?
