Areas of expertise My research interests lie broadly in the area of macroeconomics, especially in long-run economic development. More specifically I have done research on productivity, regional growth rates, the rôle of financial markets, agricultural history and the effect of demographic change and pensions on the macroeconomy.

More topical recent research includes an analysis of the UK annuity market, which has huge implications for the pensions industry and a study of the effect of the introduction of the Euro.
