Central Bank of Barbados Governor, Dr. DeLisle Worrell and a panel of experts comprising Professor Winston Moore, Head of the Department of Economics at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill; Donna Wellington, President of The Barbados Bankers' Association; Reginald Farley, Executive Director of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Barbados; and Jewel Brathwaite, a well respected business journalist discussed a wide range of topics related to the economy.

Throughout the evening, the panel took questions from the forum's two moderators, Dean St. Hill and Patrick "Salt" Bellamy, as well as from the studio audience and from Facebook, where the event was being livestreamed. Over the 90 minutes, issues such as the fiscal deficit, the decline in the island's foreign reserves, the printing of money and the effects of low productivity were debated with a great deal of candor.
