Peter Sinclaire

The Departments of Economics at Birmingham and Oxford are organising a conference in honour of Peter Sinclair, to be held in Birmingham on 7-8 April 2022. Peter was a central figure in UK macroeconomics for more than half a century, so we will be marking his passing by bringing our community together to discuss the very latest developments in macroeconomics and monetary economics.
