Speaker: Professor Michael Sandel Discussants: Stephanie Flanders, Professor Julian Le Grand, Rt Revd Peter Selby Chair: Ann Pettifor Recorded on 23 May 2012 in St Paul's Cathedral, London. Is there something wrong with a world in which everything is for sale? If so, how can we prevent market values from reaching into spheres of life where they don't belong? What are the moral limits of markets? Noted public philosopher and Harvard professor Michael J. Sandel will explore some of these pressing questions with responses from Stephanie Flanders, Professor Julian Le Grand and Bishop Peter Selby. St Paul's Cathedral is delighted to host a discussion on this vital topic within a sacred space in order to explore the intersection between faith, morality and markets and the power that money has in our lives. Questions and comments from the audience will be taken. Michael J. Sandel is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Government at Harvard University, where he has taught political philosophy since 1980. His recent book, Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do? relates the big questions of political philosophy to the most vexing issues of our time. His new book, What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets, has just been published. At Harvard, Sandel's courses include Ethics, Biotechnology, and the Future of Human Nature, Ethics, Economics, and Law, and Globalization and Its Critics. His undergraduate course, Justice, has enrolled over 15,000 students, and is the first Harvard course to be made freely available online and on public television. A recipient of the Harvard-Radcliffe Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Prize, Sandel was recognised by the American Political Science Association in 2008 for a career of excellence in teaching. He has been a visiting professor at the Sorbonne (Paris), delivered the Tanner Lectures on Human Values at Oxford University, and in 2009 delivered the BBC Reith Lectures. In 2010, China Newsweek named him the "most influential foreign figure of the year" in China. Stephanie Flanders has been a reporter at the New York Times (2001); a speech writer and senior advisor to the US Treasury Secretary (1997-2001); a Financial Times leader-writer and columnist (1993-7); and an economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies and London Business School. She became BBC economics editor in April 2008. She has won numerous awards, including the 2010 Harold Wincott Award for online journalism. She blogs at Stephanomics. Julian Le Grand is the Richard Titmuss Professor of Social Policy at the London School of Economics. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health Medicine, a Trustee of the Kings Fund, and a Founding Academician of the Academy of Learned Societies for the Social Sciences. He has an honorary doctorate from the University of Sussex. In 2003-5 he was seconded to No 10 Downing St as a senior policy adviser to the Prime Minister. As well as his position at No 10, he has acted as an adviser to the President of the European Commission, the World Bank, the World Health Organisation, the OECD, Her Majesty's Treasury and the UK Departments of Health and Work and Pensions. Dr Peter Selby was Bishop of Worcester from 1997 until 2007 and in 2001 was also appointed to Bishop of Prisons, a post from which he also retired in September 2007. Dr Selby's interest in prisons is long-standing, and he is himself the son of refugees, and served for a time as the Chair of the Asylum Committee of the Refugee Council. His concern for prisons and the criminal justice system extends back to 1965 when he served as an interim chaplain at San Quentin, California, as part of his ministerial training. Ann Pettifor is director of Policy Research in Macro-Economics (PriME), and a senior fellow of the New Economics Foundation. She is the author of The Coming First World Debt Crisis which was published in 2006 St Paul's Institute seeks to foster an informed Christian response to the most urgent ethical and spiritual issues of our times: financial integrity, economic justice, and the meaning of the common good. JustShare is a coalition of churches and charities committed to global development and social justice.

SOUNDBITE:(French) Jean Fabbri, teacher: "It is an essential battle. The government imposes this type of action on us while not listening to the strong protest movement and the proposals from the main players." 9. Various of students protesting STORYLINE: Several hundreds students demonstrated in Paris on Thursday against the government's university reform. French university students are angry over a law making their schools more market-friendly and have shut down classes at several campuses across France in the last few weeks. One protester told AP Television that she was against the reform because "it will privatise universities", adding that; "we want everybody to have equal opportunities". Teacher Jean Fabbri told AP Television; "it is an essential battle. The government imposes this type of action on us while not listening to the strong protest movement and the proposals from the main players." The reforms, passed by lawmakers in August, will make all state-run French universities independent within five years, granting them the right to control their own budgets, raise tuition and accept private donations. Proponents believe the law will make French graduates more competitive in the global marketplace by improving facilities and reducing university dropout rates. Many of those against the coming changes argue that allowing private companies to fund specific departments will diminish funding for the humanities and erode near-equal access for everyone to higher education. The move is part of Sarkozy's larger reform agenda, which includes raising the retirement age from 55 to 60 for certain public employees and reducing benefits packages.

http://sensibleinvesting.tv -- the independent voice of passive investing Part two of a four-part series exploring the foundations of passive investing and the men who have brought it to global significance. Part two describes the random walk theory: the belief that share prices are not predictable as they are based on reaction to information that is being fed into the market completely randomly. The observations of Jules Regnault and Louis Bachelier in the late 19th century, built upon by figures such as Paul Samuelson and Burton Malkiel still hold true in our 21st century economy. Featuring contributions from Bernd Hanke, Prof Patricia Chelley-Steeley and Jeffrey Molitor. One of the key foundation stones of passive investing theory is that share prices reflect reactions to information being fed into the market completely randomly. It was a French stockbroker called Jules Regnault who first introduced the notion in a book published in 1863. A generation later, his compatriot Louis Bachelier, a mathematician, developed the idea further, while researching at the Sorbonne at Paris. In The Theory of Speculation, the PhD thesis he submitted in 1900, Bachelier wrote: "The influences that determine the movements of the market are innumerable; past, current and even anticipated events that often have no obvious connection with its changes... It is thus impossible to hope for mathematical probability." Bachelier's famous conclusion was that "the mathematical expectation of the speculator is zero." The theory became known as The Random Walk - the idea that share price movements are no more predictable than the steps of a drunkard. But it took more than half a century for academics to acknowledge the significance of Bachelier's contribution. Randomness was also the theme of a famous book published in 1973, by the Princeton economist Burton Malkiel. In A Random Walk Down Wall Street, Malkiel revealed how index funds, which simply track an entire market, consistently outperform funds managed by professional stock-pickers. It's an idea that's clearly struck a chord with investors. Now in its tenth edition, Malkiel's book has already sold more than one and a half million copies.

Using a novel, helicopter-borne sensor to penetrate the surface of large swathes of terrain, a team of researchers supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) has gathered compelling evidence that beneath Antarctica's ice-free McMurdo Dry Valleys lies a salty aquifer that may support previously unknown microbial ecosystems and retain evidence of ancient climate change. An airborne electromagnetic (AEM) sensor, called SkyTEM, mounted to the helicopter, allowed the team to discover that brines--salty water--form extensive aquifers below glaciers, lakes and within permanently frozen soils. The brines may also play an important role in contemporary biological processes in the Dry Valleys. "These unfrozen materials appear to be relics of past surface ecosystems and our findings provide compelling evidence that they now provide deep subsurface habitats for microbial life despite extreme environmental conditions," says the study's lead author Jill Mikucki, an assistant professor of microbiology at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. "We believe the application of novel below-ground visualization technologies can not only reveal hidden microbial habitats, but can also provide insight on glacial dynamics and how Antarctica responds to climate change." In addition to providing answers about the biological adaptations of previously unknown ecosystems that persist in the extreme cold and dark of the Antarctic winter, the new information could also help scientists to understand whether similar conditions might exist elsewhere in the solar system, specifically beneath the surface of Mars, which has similarities to the Dry Valleys. The team also found evidence that brines flow towards the Antarctic coast from roughly 18 kilometers (11 miles) inland, eventually discharging into the Southern Ocean, a biologically rich body of water that encircles Antarctica It is possible that nutrients from microbial weathering in these deep brines influence near-shore biological productivity in that ocean. However, the vast majority of Antarctica's coastal margins remain unexplored. This new survey highlights the importance of these sensitive interfaces. The research was published on April 28 in the open-access journal Nature Communications. Co-authors on the paper include researchers from the University of Tennessee, University of California-Santa Cruz, Dartmouth College, University of Illinois at Chicago, Louisiana State University, University of Wisconsin, Aarhus University in Denmark and Sorbonne Universites, UPMC University in France. The NSF-funded researchers were part of an international, interdisciplinary team that used the AEM sensor, which was developed at Aarhus University in Denmark, to produce extensive imagery of the subsurface of the coldest, driest desert on our planet, the McMurdo Dry Valleys. Using a helicopter to make the observations allowed large areas of rugged terrain to be surveyed very efficiently. The results shed new light on the history and evolution of the Dry Valley landscape, which, uniquely in the Antarctic is ice-free and which during the height of the southern summer has free flowing rivers and streams. The Dry Valleys also are home to briny lakes at the surface and beneath at least one of the glaciers that intrude into the Valleys. Overall, the Dry valleys ecosystem--intensely cold, very dry, and home only to microscopic animal and plant life--closely resembles, during the Antarctic summer, conditions on the surface on Mars. In addition to many other studies, the Dry Valleys are home to projects that are investigating how climate has changed over geologic time. The AEM team believes that the newly discovered brines harbor similar microbial communities persisting in the deep, cold dark aquifers.

“PhiloGaïa Orchestra project” has started from spontaneous improvisation sessions in Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris. Musicians in the institute have sought an original way of gathering our passions in geophysics and in music closer than ever. A concert held on November 18th 2016 in the amphitheater of INALCO, Paris was a first contact with the general public. It was funded by “Festival of ideas in Paris 2016” of Université Sorbonne Paris Cité and the music was composed by a young film-composer Baptiste Brice. The project will further seek opportunities and directions.
