Independent Economists Group (IEG) quarterly reports
The Independent Economists Group (IEG) was established in April 2012 as a forum to bring together some of the most senior economists in the sector. The aim is to advance the public debate on key topics, to enable the sector to make a coherent contribution to this debate, and therefore to support policymakers in resolving the key issues facing the UK, EU and global economies.
The findings of each discussion are set out in the attached reports. The latest meeting focused on the role of macroprudential policy in the policy framework. The topics for future meetings will help inform strategic policy and focus of TheCityUK, and provide an independent voice on wider issues relevant to the UK economy and its financial sector.
The latest report; Investment, Growth and Capital Markets Union (June 2015) examines what drives investment and financing decisions in the EU’s financial markets and how integrating and improving the functions of capital markets might be done most effectively.
