Date: Tuesday 20 September 2016
Time: 6.30 - 8pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building

Speaker: David Smith, Economics Editor of The Sunday Times since 1989. He has written a number of books, including The Rise and Fall of Monetarism, From Boom to Bust, Will Europe Work?, The Age of Instability, Free Lunch and, most recently, Something Will Turn Up

This event is part of LSE's 'After BREXIT: the future of the UK in Europe' series. An exploration of the issues raised by the UK’s vote to leave the European Union through lectures, panel discussions and debates. The series will cover the broad range of political, economic, legal, and social issues as preparations for the negotiations on ‘BREXIT’ are underway. ‘BREXIT’ represents an unprecedented agenda for Europe and an historical milestone for the British state: as such, the need for informed debate is paramount.
