I am Research Director at NIESR in London and a Professor of Economics at the University of Warwick. I am also an Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Economics at UCLA. You can find links here to my books, my published papers, my working papers and my CV as a pdf file. I also write a blog, Roger Farmer's Economic Window where I post thoughts, comments and op ed pieces.
I am on the Management Team of Rebuilding Macroeconomics, an ESRC sponsored Network Plus located at NIESR. I am also a co-leader of the Instability hub along with Jean-Philippe Bouchaud of École Polytechnique. Rebuilding Macroeconomics is charged with funding creative new ideas in macroeconomics that are relevant for economic policy. Watch out on this space for calls for proposals.
