Jagjit Chadha appointed Gresham College Professor

Jagjit Chadha, the School’s Chair in Money and Banking and Professor of Economics, has been appointed as Professor of Commerce at Gresham College, London. Professor Chadha’s appointment is for three years, in which he will deliver an annual series of free public lectures, in addition to continuing his teaching and research at the School. The series of six public lectures will be on Money, Monetary Policy and Central Banks: The Meeting of Art and Science. Professor Chadha comments that:

“In my Gresham lectures I will explore a number of macroeconomic insights that have been missed by many casual observers. The Global Financial Crisis has given many critics of modern economic practice considerable scope to argue for new directions. However, it is actually the case that, even though work has to be done to provide fuller answers, many of the pertinent issues arising from the crisis have already been explored by academic economists. This first series of lectures follows closely my forthcoming book, Money, Monetary Policy and Central Banks, which will be published during the course of these lectures.”
