Mervyn King


Distinguished Visiting Professor of Business and Law Sir Mervyn King, who stepped down from his position as governor of the Bank of England and chair of its Monetary Policy Committee and Financial Policy Committee on June 30 after more than two decades at the UK’s central bank, is visiting NYU in the fall semester with a joint appointment between the Law School and the Stern School of Business. King joined the Bank of England in 1990 as a non-executive director and has been chief economist, executive director, and deputy governor. The first incumbent governor to be granted an audience by Queen Elizabeth II, King led the Bank of England during the global financial crisis that took hold in 2008. Asserting that the only way to prevent a worldwide depression was to join other central banks in cutting interest rates almost to zero, among other measures, King was also highly critical of the banking sector and its bailout in the wake of the crisis, and supported measures to bring down the national deficit. Before working for the Bank of England, King was a professor at the London School of Economics, where he founded the Financial Markets Group. He had previously taught at the University of Birmingham and the University of Cambridge. In 1983-84, King was a visiting professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he shared an office with Ben Bernanke, the future chairman of the Federal Reserve, who was then an assistant professor.
