LSE Department of Management and FAES public lecture
Date: Tuesday 10 November 2009
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: José María Aznar
Chair: Professor Luis Garicano
A crisis that has impoverished the world has shown the need for an enhanced rules-based framework for the international financial system. More transparency, better regulation, incentives and oversight and a more in depth understanding of the implications of increased financial interdependence in a globalized world are the basis for the reforms needed.
José María Aznar became Prime Minister of Spain in 1996. His time as Prime Minister lasted up until the elections of 2004, when he voluntarily chose not to run for office again. He is Executive President of FAES, Distinguished Scholar at the University of Georgetown and author of several books the latest one being España puede salir de la crisis (2009), Spain can get out of the crisis.
This event marks the launch of a FAES report "Reform of the International Financial System: a proposal with the lessons from the crisis."
FAES, Foundation for Social Studies and Analysis is a private non-profit organisation that works in the sphere of ideas and political proposals. Linked to the Partido Popular since its creation in 1989, FAES Foundation is presided by José María Aznar. FAES is a leading think tank committed to nurturing the political ideas and activities of the liberal and reformist centre.
