The Treasury and an Introduction to Economic History – in Partnership with HM Treasury
This MA module at King’s College London is the result of a unique collaboration between HM Treasury, the Department of Political Economy at King's and The Strand Group.
The module studies the role and actions of the Treasury and its Chancellors since the Second World War up to the present day, through the context of the British economy. Students gain unprecedented insight into the theory and practice of British economic history since the Second World War from those who have dealt with it first hand.
Prominent guest speakers further increase the stellar teaching panel, and provide specific expertise and insights on relevant weeks. In previous years, guests have included former Chancellors Gordon Brown, Ken Clarke, Alistair Darling, Lord Lawson and George Osborne; former Chief Secretary to the Treasury Sir Danny Alexander; and a wide range of other insightful and experienced guests including Lord Burns, Rupert Harrison, Sir John Kingman, Eleanor Shawcross Wolfson, Baroness Vadera and Lord Willetts.
