Award-winning BBC journalist visits Nightingale Hammerson

Residents at Nightingale House run by care home organisation Nightingale Hammerson met award-winning BBC Economics Editor Robert Peston, when he visited the home to talk about his work.

He led an interesting discussion of the history of the financial crisis and the current situation. He expressed optimism for the future, albeit raising the potential for further problems down the line, particularly in China.

Interesting questions from the audience included those about pay day lending, reputational problems suffered by bankers and the demise of manufacturing in the UK.

Robert Peston (pictured with resident Marlene Singer) is well-known for broadcasting and publishing a series of influential reports about the causes and consequences of the global financial crisis and for his work at the Financial Times, Sunday Telegraph, Sunday Times and New Statesman.
