One of the City of London’s best-known economists, Roger Bootle runs the consultancy, Capital Economics, which specialises in macroeconomics and the economics of the property market. He is also Economic Adviser to Deloitte, a Specialist Adviser to the House of Commons Treasury Committee and an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries. He was formerly Group Chief Economist of HSBC and, before the change of government, he was appointed to the Chancellor’s panel of Independent Economic Advisers, the so-called ‘Wise Men’.
Roger Bootle studied at Oxford University and then became a Lecturer in Economics at St Anne’s College, Oxford. Most of his subsequent career has been spent in the City of London.
Since its publication in 2009, Roger’s book, The Trouble with Markets has been updated with a major new chapter on The Trouble With The Euro, based on his Wolfson Economic Prize winning entry. The book is about the deep origins of the current financial crisis and the consequences for economies, markets and politics, both domestic and international.
Its wide sweep and broad popular appeal is similar to his previous books The Death of Inflation and Money for Nothing, which both became bestsellers and were translated into several languages. Initially dismissed as extreme The Death of Inflation correctly forecast a long period of low inflation. Money for Nothing correctly anticipated the property bubble and much of the current crisis. It won the Independent Book Publishers’ Award. Roger is also joint author of the book Theory of Money and author of Index-Linked Gilts.
Roger is a regular columnist for The Daily Telegraph and frequently appears on television and radio.
