This evening we will be joined by BBC Newsnight’s economics editor Paul Mason, who won acclaim for his coverage of the financial crisis from the collapse in 2008 of Lehman Brothers and all that followed. He will be joining us to discuss a careet that ranges from covering gang violence on Merseyside to the rise of China as an economic power.
