What have the Emerging Markets Learned from the Current Crisis?

In this panel session, we ask economists, political commentators and investors to discuss how the crisis has impacted various emerging economies and why? Many commentators have argued that a multi-polar world will result in the emerging economies finally decoupling from the developed world. Can this still be the case, or will it be postponed indefinitely? To what extent could Russia and other emerging markets have better insulated themselves from the recent global crisis and what lessons can be learned about regulation and policy response?
