As International Monetary Fund Director Christine Lagarde gives this yearâs Dimbleby Lecture, Anne McElvoy asks seasoned Lagarde watchers Gillian Tett and Ngaire Woods to analyse her performance and to reflect on whether her growing personal mythology is enough to alter the reputation of the oft-criticised organisation she fronts. Google CEO Eric Schmidt recently said âhow ever many entrepreneurs you think you need, it isnât enoughâ to cope with the worldâs challenges. But entrepreneurs are often portrayed as greedy and ruthless in films like The Wolf of Wall Street. Luke Johnson and Mariana Mazzucato consider where the truth lies. Plus Anne considers the portrayal of boxers in culture with Anna Whitwham, Lynda Nead and Steven Fowler.
