Wednesday 16 January 2013, 2.00PM to 4.00pm
Speaker(s): Andrew Baker, Queen's University, Belfast
Andrew Baker from Queen's University, Belfast, will give a paper entitled Technocracy, Popular Legitimacy and the Intellectual Heritage of the Macroprudential Project.
Andrew works in the field of International Political Economy, focusing on how the international management of money and finance relates to politics, power and wealth distribution. His research has examined how global financial orders are created and sustained, and the patterns of politics and political conditions required to change and transform those orders. His current project looks at the political economy of post-crisis regulation. One strand of this work, entitled “Financial Booms and Crisis Politics: The Political Economy of Macroprudential Regulation”, looks at the apparent rise of macroprudential regulation, with a particular focus on the role, workings and output of the Financial Stability Board (FSB).
