    yes it seems like it but then again Cambridge has had Keyns and Marshalls and Robinsons...many many great economists....but personally i prefer LSE's course (more flexible) but don't like to live in London...

    The answer to this is well known in academic circles. For prestige anyway, Cambridge for undergraduate Econ., and LSE for it's graduate faculty in Econ (MSc/PhD). Although both are excellent either for under/postgrad study, needless to say.

    Some of them are economists', many are not (i.e. LSE's more than a school of Econ).

    He's very closely associated with an Austrian fellow known as Fredrich Von Hayek. Their theories were a critique of the then ‘Keynesian consensus’. He was a prof. at the LSE, and Nobel Laureate. Ah what the hell, don't need Friedman, the alumni list for LSE over the 20th century, considering it's only a school of the social sciences is as impressive as either Oxford/Cambridge:P It's just, as someone else has said, LSE's not a particularly good teaching institution, primarily a research centre. I fully agree with that.
