Date: Thursday 17 February 2011
Venue: Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
Speaker: Professor John Van Reenen
Respondent: Professor Jonathan Haskel
Chair: Professor Steve Machin
Where will the sources of new growth come from in the wake of the financial crisis and recession? What is the role of education, labour markets and government policy in supporting this growth?
John Van Reenen has been professor of economics at LSE and the director of the Centre for Economic Performance, since October 2003.
Jonathan Haskel is a Professor of Economics at Imperial College Business School based in the Healthcare Management and Innovation and Enterprise Group.
The CEP is an interdisciplinary research centre at the LSE Research Laboratory. It was established by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in 1990 and is now one of the leading economic research groups in Europe. The CEP studies the determinants of economic performance at the level of the company, the nation and the global economy by focusing on the major links between globalisation, technology and institutions (above all the educational system and the labour market) and their impact on productivity, inequality, employment, stability and wellbeing.
LSE Works is a new series of public lectures, sponsored by SAGE publications, that will showcase some of the latest research by LSE's Research Centres. In each

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For any queries email email@example.com or call 020 7955 6043.
