Worshipful Whatnots

Completed for the International Political Economy class in the CSU MAGI program, Spring semester 2015. This paper includes some of my personal collection of campaign leaflets from my time working for Labour’s London mayoral candidate Frank Dobson in 2000.

ABSTRACT: Based on an analysis of Krasner’s four factors of sovereignty, the 1,000 year history of the Corporation of the City of London, and the inaugural election of the Greater London Authority in 2000, this paper will argue that the Corporation is a sovereign state which in 1955 breached the Bretton Woods framework by creating the Eurodollar market, embedding a systemic risk into the international monetary system through the sovereignty of the City’s offshore.
