LSE Director Minouche Shafik is joined by LSE IDEAS Director Chris Alden, Grantham Research Institute Chair Nick Stern, and Keyu Jin to discuss some of the global economy’s most pressing problems and map out a new agenda for global economic governance, which the Commission will take up in subsequent panels.
The global economy is being buffeted by war and sanctions, surging commodity prices and economic uncertainty - not to mention the ongoing strain of US-China relations, the global pandemic and climate change. Mitigating what has come to be known as the world’s “polycrisis” will require a transformation of the rules, practices, and institutions of the global economy. To help steer that transformation, the London School of Economics and Poiltical Science and LSE IDEAS have convened the LSE Global Economic Governance Commission.
This webinar was held on Thursday 31 March 2022.
Keyu Jin is Associate Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Minouche Shafik is Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Nicholas Stern is IG Patel Professor of Economics and Government and Chair of the Grantham Research Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
