'This is a party happy to travel first class on the EU gravy train'
The Times, 10/03/2014, p.8, Alice Thomson; Rachel Sylvester
…how he left, utterly disillusioned by Ukip. "I'm still a Eurosceptic. I just decided there was no intelligence there. The organisation is rotten at its uppermost levels. Alan Sked, the London School of Economics professor who founded Ukip in 1993, is horrified by what the party has become. "Had MEPs been elected when I was leader, they would have given…

The Guardian, 10/03/2014, p.12, Maev Kennedy
…a permanent home, after almost a century of repeatedly having to pack up and move a unique archive of books, letters, diaries, magazines, protest banners, pamphlets and photographs. Although the London School of Economics, whose founders shared many of the radical ideals of the women who started the library, has pledged to care for the collection and keep it open…

Banks' €10bn forex albatross

…earnings and capital generation, costing 10 of the largest banks in Europe and the US roughly $235bn between 2008 and 2012 alone, according to the "Conduct Costs Project" of the London School of Economics. "We don't strip out litigation as one-offs from the earnings any more, as it has simply become a cost of doing business," Mr Wheeler said.

Principal-¬agent relationship could explain bubbles
Financial Times, 10/03/2014, p.16, John Authers
Greed and fear have been around forever. It is hard to blame an intensifying problem in the markets on any increased level of greed. Paul Woolley of the London School of Economics thinks he is on his way to a new answer. On his reading, the problem is lodged in the division between principals and agents.

BOOK OF THE WEEK
The Sunday Telegraph, 09/03/2014, p.27, Antony Beevor
…Nietzsche claimed that war was "the father of good prose". Christopher Coker, professor of international relations at the LSE, rightly reminds us in this fascinating study that it is responsible for some pretty terrible writing too. Hemingway used to argue that fiction can be closer to the truth…

'The working class feel betrayed. That's where we'll get our votes'

My mother can help to build a new Ukraine, says daughter of the revolution

Although Miss Tymoshenko spent her early life in Britain - she read economics and government at the LSE and was married to Sean Carr, a rock singer from Leeds - she denies any political ambitions of her own and says she is determined to stay in Ukraine.

Is Vladimir Putin rebuilding the Soviet Union? How will the populist parties fare in the European elections?
The Independent, 08/03/2014, p.41, Anthony Giddens
The negotiations could be protracted, but it is very likely that at some point the Scots would be accepted into the EU.
Anthony Giddens is a former director of the London School of Economics and a member of the House of Lords. His most recent book, 'Turbulent and Mighty Continent: What Future for Europe?', is published by Cambridge: Polity Press.

At last, a breakthrough in the struggle to change attitudes to sex crimes
The Guardian, 08/03/2014, p.27, Deborah Orr
Stanko's research, which will be presented in a lecture at the London School of Economics on Tuesday, is very troubling. The draft paper does not include final figures, but suggests that: "Those with learning difficulties were 67% less likely to have to have their case referred by police for prosecution than those without. Mental illness reduced the chances by 40%."

Wisdom set to work
Financial Times, 08/03/2014, p.8, Julian Baggini
This project requires him to fillet and discard several red herrings. Chief among those is the still-standard model of insight set out by Graham Wallas, co-founder of London School of Economics, in his 1926 book The Art of Thought. Wallas believed insight followed from a process of preparation, incubation, illumination and verification.

Evening Standard, 07/03/2014, p.23, John Arlidge
Independent analysts also dispute the claims that wealthy foreigners are the main reason prices are rising so sharply. Professor Tony Travers of the LSE says it is the historic rise in London’s population, not foreign investors, that is forcing up the price of most homes. ‘London is growing by 100,000 people a year, the fastest rate ever,’ he says.

Should Hebden Bridge be the UK's second city?
BBC (Web), 10/03/2014, Unattributed
It is named Zipf's Law after the American linguist George Zipf, who noticed that the frequency distribution of words in many languages followed that pattern. For the UK, the implication is stark. As the eminent economic geographer from the London School of Economics, Henry Overman, puts it: "These kind of arguments imply that the problem with Britain's urban system is not that London is too big.
