The FT is launching a global marketing campaign to support the series while CNBC will focus marketing on the EMEA and Asia regions.

The print content will include contributions from Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Howard Davies, director of the London School of Economics and Political Science.

CNBC’s TV coverage will air across the EMEA and Asia until 9 November, presented by Geoff Cutmore.
