Event Details

Annual SAGE Publishing Lecture 2018


Public policy 10 years after the crisis


To be given by

Paul Johnson CBE FAcSS

 Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies 


You are invited to join the Campaign for Social Science at our Annual SAGE Publishing Lecture, which this year will be delivered by Paul Johnson CBE FAcSS, Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies and Visiting Professor of Economics at University College London.


Much of what we thought we knew about the path of the economy, the role of monetary policy, how incomes rise over time, and management of public policy has been turned on its head since the financial crisis of 2008. Ten years on, Paul Johnson reflects on some of those changes, what we have learnt, and what challenges we will face over the coming decade. Brexit or no Brexit, we need to think much harder about the role, size and scope of the state and how to fund it.


Paul Johnson has published and broadcast extensively on the economics of public policy, with a particular focus on income distribution, public finances, pensions, tax, social security, education and climate change. His career has included leadership roles at HM Treasury, the Department for Education, the FSA and the Government Economic Service. Paul Johnson is currently visiting professor at UCL. In 2018 he was awarded a CBE for services to the social sciences and economics.
