The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is yet another power elite front for the Anglosphere. Ostensibly, it is a free-market oriented university. In fact, it is dedicated to turning out graduates steeped in socialist economics. In fact, the university was founded in 1895 by two British socialists, Sidney and Beatrice Webb.
The activities at the university are perfectly in line with a certain kind of socialism as well. It has produced 16 Nobel Prize winners over the years, but Nobels these days are seemingly nothing but advertisements for one-world government. The fact that the Financial Markets Group (FMG) is part of the LSE should not be a surprise to anyone who's interested in international business and financial policymaking. The Financial Markets Group communicates with various academic finance communities as well as business and financial leaders across the globe.
The Financial Markets Group has a team of senior academics and young researchers that undertake empirical and theoretical research. The group has established strong links with commercial banks, and certain investment banks. Public and private city institutions support the FMG since it stands in the forefront of understanding issues in the financial market as well as the decision making process used by banks, regulators, and corporations.
The Financial Markets Group conducts its research through thematic research programs that include Risk Management and Fixed Income Markets, Regulations and Financial Stability, Corporate Finance and Governance, Asset Pricing and Portfolio Management and the Paul Woolley Center for the Study of Capital Market Dysfunctionality. Each program hosts a number of projects on key research areas. The FMG's activities include seminars, specialized workshops, public lectures, high profile conferences and over 30 published research papers a year.
The Financial Markets Group hosts several weekly seminars like the Capital Markets Workshop, the Taxation Seminar and the Financial Regulation Seminar. They are important discussion programs for professional decision makers as well as for policy implementers.
The Financial Markets Group also produces the FMG Review, which is a popular bulletin that updates the Center's research programs, activities and articles. The FMG Review is distributed to subscribers around the world. The LSE research laboratory is an international interactive research partnership, which represents the largest concentration of elite economic science research in Europe. The FMG is at the center of that partnership.
The Financial Markets Group is focused on how changes in the economy will impact a globalized financial future.
