This is the third lecture in the PGIM Lecture Series in Honour of Charles Goodhart.

The PGIM Lecture Series in Honour of Charles Goodhart was set up in 2022 to honour Charles Goodhart, eminent economist and Emeritus Professor at LSE. Charles was instrumental in the founding of the Financial Markets Group more than 35 years ago. Charles Goodhart was appointed to the Norman Sosnow Chair of Banking and Finance at LSE in 1985, until his retirement in 2002 when he became Emeritus Professor of Banking and Finance. He was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1990, and awarded the CBE in 1997, for services to monetary economics. During 1986, he helped to establish the Financial Markets Group at LSE. For the previous 17 years he served as a monetary economist at the Bank of England, becoming a Chief Adviser in 1980. Following his advice on overcoming the financial crisis in Hong Kong in 1983, he subsequently served on the HK Exchange Fund Advisory Committee until 1997. The same year he was appointed one of the four independent outside members of the newly-formed Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee. He became an economic consultant to Morgan Stanley in 2009, until he resigned, at the age of 80, in 2016. Charles has written widely on matters relating to monetary policy, especially central banking, and macro-economics. He is the author of Goodhart's Law "that any observed statistical regularity will tend to collapse once pressure is placed upon it for control purposes".

The Financial Markets Group (@FMG_LSE) is a leading centre for research into financial markets. Research at the FMG examines how stable and efficient the financial system is, how it supports the real economy, and what policy measures can generate improvements in these dimensions.
