Talks

I have presented at academic conferences such as the European Academy of Management, the Southern Economic Association, and the Association of Private Enterprise Education; and have given public talks at Cambridge University, Oxford University, and the London School of Economics.

I am currently developing the following exciting talks:

  • Macro trends – an overview of the global economy, the monetary and fiscal policy stance, and prospects for future growth
  • The end of ideology – an overview of the great realignment in Western politics

I have also delivered the following lectures many times:

  • An Introduction to the Austrian School of Economics – the past, present and future of good economics
  • Competition and the market process – why the best form of regulation is competition
  • The financial crisis – a look at the incentive and knowledge problems that led to the credit crunch
  • Banking reform and sound money – a proposal to liberalise the banking system
  • Economic institutions and global prosperity – an overview of the economic policies that are crucial to prosperity
  • The transition experience in Eastern Europe – why radical reforms are necessary and the underappreciated role of the oligarchs

Policy

I have contributed to a number of policy debates and have received notable coverage in the following areas:

  • Competitiveness and entrepreneurship policy
  • Flat taxes, corporation tax and public finance
  • NGDP targets and free banking

My work on nuclear energy, and the potential role of SMR’s for Croatia, was covered by Open Access Government. And my advice on competitiveness was presented in a joint conference with the Minister of Finance.

My call for the Bank of England to abolish the Monetary Policy Committee was covered on the front page of the The Daily Telegraph and City AM and prompted an invitation to give a guest lecture to the Bank’s staff. I provided a comprehensive proposal for the UK to adopt nominal GDP targeting and it was covered by Forbes, CNBC, Bloomberg, Moneyweek, and discussed on Bloomberg TV.

I served on the 2020 Tax Commission which advocated a single income tax, and won the 2013 Templeton Freedom Award. My back of the envelope calculations on the counter intuitive idea that corporation tax harms workers was featured on Page 3 of The Sun, and contributed to the fact that from 2012-2017 the UK government cut it from 28% to 19%. This coincided with revenues rising by 44%.

Corporation Tax” 2020 Tax Commission Briefing Note, April 2011

  • Also covered on Page 3
  • Impact: in 2008 the rate of corporation tax was 28%. In 2011 successive UK governments started to reduce it, firstly to 26% and then to 24% in 2012, 23% in 2013, 21% in 2014, 20% in 2015, and 19% in 2017. During this period tax revenue rose by 44%. The experience during the 2010s is that lower rates coincided with higher revenues. See here for more.
