PHILIP LANE: Newly appointed chief economist at the European Central Bank
Philip Lane, Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland, Whately Professor of Political Economy at Trinity College Dublin and CEPR Research Fellow, is the only candidate nominated to succeed Peter Praet as the ECB's chief economist. He has also chaired the Advisory Scientific Committee of the European Systemic Risk Board.
Philip has been Director of the International Macroeconomics and Finance Programme at CEPR, and has been a frequent contributor to VoxEU since 2007, when his first column for CEPR's new site explored whether Europe should care about global imbalances.
VoxEU has drawn together a collection of Phillip's columns to mark the news of his appointment.
