Monetary Policy Challenges in a Post-Financial Crash World

Our next Lexture will be on Monetary policy in the Post-crash world, on the 20th of January in LUMS LT1, with Rhys Herbert. Rhys works in the Economics Research Department of Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, where he is responsible for analysing and forecasting trends in a number of the major G10 economies.

Some of the topics he will consider are:

•How do interest rates impact on the economy?

• Structure of the UK economy

• Current state of Global and UK economies

• How do we avoid the mistakes of the past?

This lecture should be useful for anyone studying Macro-Economics, and interesting for everyone who wants to know what Monetary policies major economies will embark on and why.

As ever, drinks and snacks will be provided, so please come along.

Corporations as Creatures of the State

On Tuesday the 2nd of December we will have a talk from the very engaging Dr.Williams from the PPR department to give us his take on corporations, and together we will explore the thought that contrary to popular narratives, they are in fact Frankensteins created by the state.

This will take place in the Management School, Lecture Theatre 8, and will start at 6:30PM.
