Posted on the 12th January 2018 by Anisha
Mervyn King, Baron King of Lothbury, the Governor of the Bank of England during the Financial Crisis of 2007-2008 and one of the most important central bankers of the 21st century will be speaking at WES2018.
Following a successful career in academia, including teaching at MIT and Harvard, Lord King went on to join the Bank of England in 1991 as Chief Economist. He would then lead it from 2003-2013 as Governor and oversaw the Bank during the financial crisis and the Great Recession. Lord King is also a prominent author, most famously known for ‘The End of Alchemy’, one of the most relevant books to come out of the financial crisis. After leaving the Bank in 2013, he was appointed a life peer and entered the House of Lords as a crossbencher in July 2013. Since then he has retaken his career in academia as a Professor at the Stern School of Business in New York.
