Please note this event was originally advertised as taking place Tuesday 7 February in the Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

In the wake of the Great Recession, Europe’s economy has stagnated to a considerable degree – greater even than that of the United States.

Simeon Djankov is Executive Director of the Financial Markets Group at LSE and was Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of Bulgaria 2009-13. Djankov was chief economist of the finance and private sector vice-presidency of the World Bank.

The Financial Markets Group Research Centre (@LSE_FMG) was established in 1987 at the LSE. The FMG is a leading centre in Europe for policy research into financial markets. It is the focal point of the LSE's research communication with the business, policy making and international finance communities. The FMG works alongside the Department of Finance to understand problems in financial markets and in the decision-making processes of corporations, banks and regulators.
