I have just been visiting the Warsaw School of Economics. In the hall – which is of traditional vast, Socialist planning size, there is now a TV carrying live prices from the Warsaw stock exchange and share indices for other countries.
How ironic that in formerly communist Poland, live share prices are in the main economics school hall. But you can imagine that in capitalist Britain, the idea of having such a thing would be treated as scandalous.
- Power politics, Germany and the EU
- The LSE quota for state school students and the possible privatisation of universities
- Dickens – an unreliable source for many people’s idea of the 19th century
- Guess where and what this school is
- Where the “gold ticket to Hollywood” is getting away from a state school
