Basic Network Analysis of KSE-100
For the third edition of the Brown Bag Series, the Economics Department invited Amin Hussain, a Teaching Fellow in the economics department, to give a talk. What distinguishes Amin Hussain from the rest of the faculty is that he did not start out as an Economist. He was initially an Electrical Engineer and it was later on that he developed an interest in Economics and went on to do his Masters in Economics from both LUMS and the London School of Economics and Political Science. He was selected for the esteemed Commonwealth Scholarship. The talk was primarily about research that Amin Hussain was doing on the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE-100).
Dr. Tania Saeed, Assistant Professor at the Mushtaq Ahmad Gurmani School of Humanities and Social Sciences (MGSHSS) at LUMS, has recently published a book titled ‘Youth and the National Narrative. Education, Terrorism and the Security State in Pakistan’. The book is a unique window into how Pakistan is likely to evolve in the next few decades. Co-authored by Dr. Marie Lall, Professor of Education and South Asian Studies at the Institute of Education, University College London (UCL) UK, the book utilises interviews with nearly 2000 Pakistanis aged 16-28 gathered over a decade and examines the relationship between Pakistan as a security state and its youth, specifically in terms of citizenship, education, political activism and social media.
