What future for central banks?

Page Contents >

Howard Davies, LSE Director, gives a public lecture exploring the future for central banks, on Thursday 24 November at LSE.

During the 1980s and 90s most central banks grew in size and importance. More recently, a number have lost functions to other regulatory agencies. The arrival of the European Central Bank puts a question mark over the future of central banks in individual countries.

Professor Charles Goodhart, LSE, will chair this event, which is held in conjunction with the LSESU Finance Society.

What Future for Central Banks? is on Thursday 24 November at 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
