Speaking from three decades of experience navigating the United Kingdom through one of the most perilous periods in economic history, and more recently leading the international central banking community, Lord Mervyn King engages in a lively discussion on monetary policy and the way forward for the global economy.
Regarded as one of the world’s most respected and significant leaders in central banking, Mervyn King (Lord King of Lothbury, KG, GBE, FBA) recently served for ten years as the Governor of the Bank of England, chairman of its Monetary Policy Committee and as the Chairman of the group of major central banks at the BIS (formerly the G-10 Governors). This capped a long and productive 22-year tenure at the Bank where he also served as deputy governor, chief economist and executive and non-executive director. Lord King was front and center as the Bank dealt with the 2008 financial crisis, leading Britain through an extraordinary period of its economic history that began with inflation targeting and seeking monetary independence to enacting far-reaching reform, prudent regulation and more active financial oversight.
In July of 2013, he was appointed a life peer in the British House of Lords by Queen Elizabeth II for contributions of significant public service and was also appointed a Knight of the Garter by Queen Elizabeth II in 2014. Lord King is Alan Greenspan Professor of Economics and Professor of Law at New York University and Emeritus Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics. Lord King has also written and speaks about financial crises of the past, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and especially the rather unfamiliar financial crisis of 1914. As a distinguished figure who has shaped public discourse over the last 30 years, Lord King offers a unique depth to the economic challenges that face the new world economy. Tackling fundamental economic questions, he provides an unprecedented vision for modern capitalism in his book The End of Alchemy: Money, Banking and the Future of the Global Economy (March, 2016). He is also the co-author (with John Kay) of the best-seller Radical Uncertainty: Decision-making Beyond the Numbers, published in 2020.
