18 September 2009
The Financialisation and the rise of the wealthy workshop was held at the LSE on 18 September 2009 as part of the ESRC-sponsored series - Studying Elites.
The workshop, dedicated to financial elites, was organized by Dr Yuval Millo from the Department of Accounting in collaboration with the CRESC research centre (Julie Froud and Mick Moran) and Warwick Business School (Glenn Morgan).
The workshop featured talks by academics and practitioners who discussed topics including the processes that led to the rise of the financial elite in the last decade and the possible relations of this segment to the crash. Talks were given by Mitchel Abolafia (SUNY Albany), Philip Augar, Olivier Godechot (CNRS), Sara Hall (University of Nottingham), Yuval Millo and John Plender (Financial Times).
