Ask Sir Edward George
Sir Edward George, governor of the Bank of England
Sir Edward George peers into the UK's economic future
Central bankers have the power to make or break an economy... at least that's the reputation enjoyed by Alan Greenspan, the chairman of the US Federal Reserve, and - in pre-euro days - by people like Hans Tietmeyer and Karl-Otto Pöhl of Germany's Bundesbank.

In the UK, the Bank of England is only now growing into this kind of role, since it was given independence to set interest rates.

Sir Edward George is the man in charge of the Bank of England, tasked to keep inflation low while keeping an eye on economic growth as well.

On Tuesday, Sir Edward will be interviewed on Business Today, the BBC's new business programme, and the programme's presenter, Nils Blythe, will put some of your questions to the man steering the UK economy.

Will the slowdown in the US affect the UK? Does the country meet the conditions to join the eurozone? How can one interest rate address the differing needs of UK manufacturing and the service sector?
