In the 18th century, traders and speculators gathered under a buttonwood tree on Wall Street to conduct their business. Things have changed since those humble days. The global financial system has been a vast engine of economic growth, but today's financial crisis and subsequent economic downturn has left the system in a complete shambles. It is time for a new kind of consensus in the financial community.

The Buttonwood Gathering draws on the popular weekly financial column and blog in The Economist. Bringing together global regulators and bankers to discuss and debate new ideas and develop a new set of guidelines moving forward, the event will go beyond typical financial industry events by seeking to bridge financial issues with macroeconomic and geopolitical issues.

In addition to debate and discussion among leading actors and opinion leaders involved in the discourse on the future of the global financial system, Buttonwood will feature an exclusive dinner at the historic New York Stock Exchange, and CNBC's Maria Bartiromo will broadcast her signature program, Closing Bell, live from the event.
