Where next for the UK economy?



Blanchflower D (2009) Where next for the UK economy?. Scottish Journal of Political Economy, 56 (1), pp. 1-23.

First paragraph: It is with great pleasure I come to the University of Kent - especially to Keynes College. I was actually invited by Professor Francis Green, who I replaced for a year at Kingston Poly while he was on sabbatical leave more than 20 years ago. I have also known Professor Alan Carruth for years. Alan has done a great deal of important work on internal and external influences on pay that has had a considerable influence on my work. I should say, though, that I haven't given a talk at the University of Kent since 1996 even though Carruth is convinced it was only 5 years ago! So thanks for inviting me! My one, rather feeble, claim to a connection to the area is that I went hop-picking on a farm in Marden for two summers when I was an undergraduate in the early 1970s!
