Pro­fes­sor David Grae­ber spe­cial­izes in “Mada­gas­car, Europe, North Amer­ica; the­o­ries of value, money, debt, pol­i­tics, man­ners, magic, class, so­cial move­ments, so­cial the­ory” at the Lon­don School of Eco­nom­ics, of­ten re­ferred to as the LSE. It has more than 10,000 stu­dents, who are in­spired by its Latin motto Rerum cognoscere causas, which trans­lates as “to know the causes of things”. Friedrich Hayek, the Aus­trian econ­o­mist who taught at the LSE in the 1930s and 1940s, made the school fa­mous in his de­bates with John May­nard Keynes of Cam­bridge Univer­sity. Keynes sup­ported the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the state in the econ­omy, while Hayek em­pha­sized free trade and op­posed state in­volve­ment. The LSE to­day is led by three women: Dame Mi­nouche Shafik is the direc­tor, Dame Shirley Pearce is the chair of gov­er­nors and the chan­cel­lor is Anne, Princess Royal, the daugh­ter of Queen El­iz­a­beth II and Prince Philip.
