How did London Get Away With it? The Recession and the North-South Divide

LSE Works: Spatial Economics Research Centre and LSE London

It was widely expected that London would, in the short to medium run, be the most severely hit of the UK regions in the recession initiated by the 2007-08 financial crisis. This lecture considers why this did not happen.

Henry G Overman is professor of economic geography at LSE and director of the Spatial Economics Research Centre.

Ian Gordon is professor of human geography at LSE.

Alex Jones is chief executive of the Centre for Cities.

Hamish McRae is an associate editor of The Independent.

LSE Works is a new series of public lectures, sponsored by SAGE publications, that will showcase some of the latest research by LSE's Research Centres. In each
session, LSE academics will present key research findings, demonstrating where appropriate the implications of their studies for public policy.
