LSE in print

In search of shoots
Financial Times, 21/03/2011, p.13, Writes Chris
Professor John Van Reenen of the LSE says it is important for ministers to put in place the broad conditions for growth, but that a proactive approach might also work.

Shami's shame
The Daily Telegraph, 21/03/2011, p.10, Tim Walker
Opinion: The BBC happily gave a platform to Shami Chakrabarti on the Andrew Marr Show yesterday as British servicemen put their lives on the line in Libya. Mr Marr clearly decided it would be an impertinence to point out that his voluble guest had been a member of the ruling council of the London School of Economics when it had quietly accepted money from the reviled dictator's playboy son, Saif, and that she had been content, too, to see him given a PhD.

Embarrassing liaisons at UK universities
International Herald Tribune, 21/03/2011, p.12, D.d. Guttenplan
It has been a tense few weeks for university fund-raisers. When students at the London School of Economics occupied the faculty dining room last month to protest the school's links with the Libyan government, it seemed like a purely local dispute. But the controversy has also shone a bright and not entirely welcome light on how universities raise money. On March 2, Robert Halfon MP filed Freedom of Information requests with 100 British universities asking them to detail all funding received from the region. The universities have a month to respond to Mr Halfon. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/21/education/21iht-educLede21.html?_r=1&partner=rss&emc=rss|

What chairmen really think
The Sunday Times, 20/03/2011, p.2, Geoffrey Owen
Sir Geoffrey Owen, senior fellow in the department of management at the LSE, interviewed a number of boardroom directors to learn how they felt their roles on Britain's boardrooms had changed and the article comprises an extract from the resulting report: Evolution or Revolution? Changes in Britain’s boards of directors from 1960 to 2010. He feels that one of the biggest differences between the private equity world and the listed company is that the former opts for industry knowledge when choosing board directors, whereas the latter cherishes independence - there is strong support for Sir David Walker's warning that over-emphasis on this quality may mean sacrificing relevant expertise.

Sons' struggle to be colonel's enforcer
The Sunday Times, 20/03/2011, p.18, Marie Colvin
The article examines the roles played by the sons of Colonel Gaddafi in the Libyan regime. The views of second son, LSE educated Saif al-Islam, who is by far the most reform-minded, appear to have gained precedence over those of his more hard line brothers; less than a week ago in Tripoli, his father made public his approval of Saif's perspective. However, Saif does not act without consulting his father and has said the regime will fight to the end should international force be opposing it.

No remorse
The Sunday Times, 20/03/2011, p.24, Unattributed
A representative of The Henry Jackson Society writes to assert that some contrition on the part of Shami Chakrabarti for her role in the LSE council that accepted funds from the Gaddafi regime would help restore her image.

Muddying the waters over rainfall records
The Sunday Telegraph, 20/03/2011, p.33, Unattributed
Christopher Booker,who was taken to task by Bob Ward, Policy and Communications Director for the Grantham Institute on Climate Change at the LSE, for assertions he made in an article, claims that Mr Ward's refutations were based upon misquoting his article. He goes on the recollect that not one of the complaints Mr Ward made against the Channel 4 documentary 'The Great Global Warning Swindle' was upheld by Ofcom.

MI6 gave Gaddafi's son London minder
The Mail on Sunday, 20/03/2011, p.8, Miles Goslett
Labour's links with Colonel Gaddafi are coming under scrutiny, after it emerged that Saif Gaddafi was given special assistance by MI6 when he was a student at the LSE. Sources say Saif Gaddafi met with the Foreign Office when he was in London, as well as an executive from BAE SYSTEMS, despite trade relations with Libya being suspended at that time. BAE has confirmed that it held talks with Libya around that time over the supply of commercial aircraft, but declined to say whether Saif was involved.

The Mail on Sunday, 20/03/2011, p.107, Unattributed
Eran Yashiv has penned an article explaining 'the economics of elite football clubs' for the latest issue of CentrePiece, a journal of the London School of Economics.

The Diary
Financial Times, 19/03/2011, p.2, Rory Bremner
Rory Bremner was sad to read of Howard Davies's departure from the LSE over its Libyan connections. He remembers being very impressed by his sharp brain and sense of humour.

Paternity rights and wrongs
The Guardian, 19/03/2011, p.1, Valeria Criscione
Norway introduced shared parental leave on 1977 and was the first country to establish a quota for fathers in 1993 - prior to this, only 2-3pc of Norwegian fathers took time off work to be with their offspring, whereas today, the quota is used by 9 out of 10. However, according to Catherine Hakim, senior LSE research fellow and author of the controversial report Feminist Myths and Magic Medicine, the adherence to equal opportunity policy demonstrated by Nordic countries is not reflected in the labour market there, in which, largely, 'women are nurses while men are doctors.....women are secretaries while managers are men'.

London calling
Evening Standard, 18/03/2011, p.12, Tom Harper
The article looks at the many property investments held by Middle Eastern leaders of non-democratic regimes in London, which is regarded as particularly attractive as non-residents do not pay capital gains tax. Included is property owned by the Gaddafi regime, links with which recently caused the LSE great embarrassment, culminating in the resignation of its director. Opinion is divided on whether it is right to deal with dictators: Sir Richard Dalton feels some of the criticism levelled at the LSE amounted to a 'ridiculous witch-hunt and a distortion of what happened', while LSE Middle East expert Dr John Chalcraft thinks the British government has a 'moral case to answer' due to its dealings with such as Gaddafi.

Go East, young bureaucrat
