Systemic Risk Centre Event

Time: 6:30 - 8:00pm GMT
Speakers: Sebastian Mallaby (Council on Foreign Relations & SRC) 
Chair: Minouche Shafik (LSE)

Investing always involves bets on an uncertain future, but venture capitalists face uncertainty of an extreme sort. How do they decide which startups have a chance of making it? How do they impact the economy and society? And why is venture capital spreading globally? 

Sebastian Mallaby (@scmallaby) is the Paul A Volcker Senior Fellow in International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations. A contributor to the Financial Times, the Atlantic, the Washington Post and other publications, he is the author of the New York Times bestselling More Money Than God: Hedge Funds and the Making of a New Elite. His new book is The Power Law: Venture Capital and the Art of Disruption.

Minouche Shafik is the Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science. Prior to this, she was Deputy Governor of the Bank of England. She is an alumna of LSE. Her new book, What We Owe Each Other: A New Social Contract, is out now.
