Economic Globalisation, Inequality and Debt

Wednesday 27 February, 6.30pm
Old Theatre, Old Building

Professor Robert Wade will be speaking on Economic Globalisation, Inequity and Debt on Wednesday 27 February at LSE in the second of the Miliband Lecture on Global Economic Governance series.

He will argue that world income inequality is becoming even more unequal, that the major causes include the growing 'financialisation' of the world economy, and that inequalities could be curbed - and other benefits gained - by instituting a world financial system and abolishing foreign exchange markets.

Robert Hunter Wade is Professor of Political Economy at LSE and has held fellowships at the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton), the Russell Sage Foundation (New York), and the Institute for Advanced Study (Berlin).

  • Wednesday 20 March, Professor Robert Goodin on Globalising Justice
  • Friday 17 May, Professor Robert O Keohane on Global Governance and Democratic Accountability
  • Thursday 6 June, Professor John G. Ruggie on Global Governance: the corporate connection.
