Thursday, September 11, 2014

We are delighted to welcome Sir Charlie Bean to the CEPR Board of Trustees. Sir Charlie brings a wealth of experience from public policy and academia to the CEPR Board chaired by Guillermo de la Dehesa. Sir Charlie was until just recently Deputy Governor for Monetary Policy at the Bank of England – a position he held all through the Global Crisis starting from 2008. Prior to that, he was Executive Director and Chief Economist at the Bank.
Sir Charlie has been a CEPR Research Fellow since the Centre was founded in 1984. His first CEPR Discussion Paper was No. 22, “The Terms of Trade, Labour Supply and the Current Account”, June 1984. He has been a professor at the London School of Economics and Stanford University, and will return to LSE this autumn as a professor. Sir Charlie was also a founding editor of Economic Policy. He has long been engaged in public service roles, which include serving as a consultant to HM Treasury, special adviser to both the Treasury Committee of the House of Commons, and to the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, and as adviser to the House of Lords enquiry into the European Central Bank.
