Key Research Interests

James’ completed his PhD in 2011. His thesis investigates the role of UK inflation targeting in inducing stability in long-term government bond yields. This investigation is carried out using theoretical, empirical and experimental analysis.

His current interests include the apparent divergence of sovereign states into ‘haven’ and ‘risk’ debtors; the implications of ever growing central bank balance sheets; and the limits to conventional monetary policy. He also has a keen interest in the economic blogosphere and the increasing role this is playing in contemporary economic debate.

James has also provided research assistance on a range of experimental research projects at UEA, including design, programming and running experimental sessions.
