LSE in print

A woman's place
The Independent, 12/03/2014, p.38, Laura Schwartz
Now the library, and the books, letters, pamphlets, photographs and banners that make up its unique collection, has moved to a new home at the London School of Economics, which opens today in central London. But will its unique spirit move with it? I admit that I have probably spent an unhealthy amount of time in The Women's Library.|  

Class struggle at rehomed Women's Library
The Guardian, 12/03/2014, p.31, Unattributed
You report that the Women's Library has a new home (10 March), but its removal from London Metropolitan University to the London School of Economics takes place during an intense period of softening up of higher education in readiness for privatisation. The LSE was the sole bidder for this unique historic collection, one of the largest in Europe, and, from the outset, The LSE declared that it would remove the collection from its purpose-built home in Aldgate. Why?|  

Why a master's gives you an edge over rivals

…believes that in sectors where postgraduate qualifications are rare, better career prospects will come. But the salary uplift, 15% on average over the course of a career, according to the London School of Economics, may not happen until later on. Gillian Clarke, vice-chairman at the UK Council for Graduate Education, says: "Although it can be hard to quantify the long-term…

Chic playlist, chic presenter: Moira Stuart triumphs
The Daily Telegraph, 12/03/2014, p.26, Gillian Reynolds
This discussion was staged at the London School of Economics, clearly with invited guests among the audience. Their questions and comments throughout were sharp and pertinent. The producer was Simon Coates. This was good radio, solid responsible, balanced yet occasionally fiery, informed but never condescending. Treasure it while we have it. If the BBC does become a subscription service, radio programmes such as this are the ones most likely to vanish into broadcasting history.|  

LETTERS to the editor
City AM, 12/03/2014, p.17, Unattributed
Joe Valentine makes some nice noises about why mayoral targets and limited planning reform will do little to ease the housing crisis. But she doesn't go far enough. She quotes Paul Cheshire of the LSE, and his calculation that taking a 1km ring of greenbelt land inside the M25 would yield enough land for a generation of housebuilding in London. But Valentine fails to note that Cheshire thinks the greenbelt should disappear entirely – it’s socially exclusive, has little environmental rationale, and benefits the very affluent. It should go altogether.|

Mental health cuts 'risk lives'
BBC (Web), 12/03/2014, Unattributed
A separate report from the charity Mind shows that mental health patients are losing social care support in greater numbers than elderly or physically-disabled people. The charity points to research by the London School of Economics which suggests 30,000 people with mental health problems have lost their social care support since 2005, following a £90m shortfall in funding.|
