LSE in print

An insult to the memory of Beveridge
The Guardian, 04/01/2012, p.31, Unattributed
Professor Robert H Wade of the LSE believes that the tax base should be switched from income to wealth, which is 'a more comprehensive measure of ability to pay', and that the modern welfare state should provide a basic universal income, so that people are not deterred from pursuing unpaid occupations.

2012 should be the year we get off the couch and make companies more productive City AM, 03/01/2012, p.16, Dennis Hayes
Dennis Hayes, professor of education at the University of Derby and the co-author of The Dangerous Rise of Therapeutic Education, decries 'the well-being fad' prevalent in the modern workplace and advocates greater emphasis on productivity. Recalling a discussion at the LSE on 'emotional happiness' and the 'science of happiness' theory propounded by Lord Richard Layard, Professor Hayes speculates that such 'emotional economists' must be laughing all the way to the bank.
