Josh’s research focuses on British macroeconomic history post-1945, and encompasses a range of themes that are of significance to both British economic history and macroeconomics alike. He has a particular interest in open-economy macroeconomic issues and the application of time series econometrics to investigating and understanding phenomena in this area, as well as their relevance to economic policy historically.
Josh holds a BSc in Economic History (First Class) from the London School of Economics, as well as an MSc in Economic History (Distinction) from the same institution. He also holds a Graduate Diploma in Financial Economics.
Beyond his immediate PhD thesis, Josh’s wider interests cover the history of econometric thought (time series econometrics in particular) as well as the work of the great British/Hungarian economist Nicholas Kaldor, and the impact of his intellectual legacy that spans a considerable breadth of modern economic theory.
