Event Details

In this Economic and Social Research seminar, join Tim Besley, Professor of Economics and Political Science at the London School of Economics, to discuss his work as a commissioner on the National Infrastructure Commission. 

Tim Besley

 

The National Infrastructure Commission will enable long term strategic decision making to build effective and efficient infrastructure for the UK. The Commission aims to look at the UK’s future needs for nationally significant infrastructure, help to maintain UK’s competitiveness amongst the G20 nations and provide greater certainty for investors by taking a long term approach to the major investment decisions facing the country.

Tim Besley is Professor of Economics and Political Science and W. Arthur Lewis Professor of Development Economics at the London School of Economics. He was a co-chair of the LSE growth commission and a member of the IFS’s Mirrlees Review panel, and is currently Chair of the Council of Management of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research.

His research interests are focused on aspects of economic policy formation in developed and emerging market economies. He is one of the leading economists involved in restoring the study of political economy to prominence in mainstream economics.
