The occasion led me to pop into the LSE web site, which was fun because I haven't been at LSE in ages. Of course one is aware of the LSE leaders in one's own fields (for me, econometrics, economics, finance), but one forgets that there's much, much more there. Look below at all the topics (and click to see the people) stuffed into the LSE. Truly unique! Basically anything that would fit in The Economist fits somewhere at LSE. Even their logos look similar, with white letters on a bright red background. Must be a British thing.
