LSE academic to speak at BA Festival of Science 2003

Monday 8 to Friday 12 September
University of Salford

Professor Charles Goodhart, deputy director of the Financial Markets Group at LSE, will be holding a two-day session on Money, Finance and Growth at the BA Festival of Science 2003 in September.  

The BA Festival of Science is the UK's most prominent science festival and this year's theme will be 'Sustainable Science'. The issue of sustainability is more relevant today than it has ever been. For science to be sustainable, the far reaching implications of new research must be carefully considered. Scientific analysis of global warming has led to a division in international opinion about the sustainability of current power production methods, for example, while recent advances in biochemistry and medical knowledge have highlighted ethical questions about the consequences of scientific advancement.

Professor Charles Goodhart is president of the BA Economics Section. His session 'Money, Finance and Growth' will be held on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 September.

Charles Goodhart is Norman Sosnow Professor of Banking and Finance and deputy director of the Financial Markets Group at LSE. He is a former member of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee.
