Debate: Bonus culture – force for good or unnecessary evil? – Banking, Financial Services & Insurance – Management Today

With bonus rows still raging on both sides of the Atlantic, MT debates the pros and cons…

At the Cass Business School on Thursday March 26, MT will chair a debate about one of the most controversial issues of the day: does the bonus culture that has become prevalent throughout UK plc act as a beneficial force, driving market participants to greater heights of achievement? Or is it a pernicious influence, encouraging dangerous and unnecessary risks that could cripple the system? MT, along with Cass and editorial intelligence, has put together a panel of experts to discuss this thorny topic.

MT editor Matthew Gwyther will chair the breakfast debate; he’ll be joined by Tim Harford, the ‘Undercover Economist’, Sir Peter Viggers MP (whose role on the Treasury Select Committee has given him a front-row seat for some of the recent fireworks), Alan Leaman, the CEO of the Management Consultancies Association, Telegraph business commentator Tracy Corrigan and Spectator Business editor Martin Vander Weyer.

They’ll certainly have plenty to discuss.
