David Vines

Professor of Economics at Oxford University, Fellow of Balliol College, and Director of the Centre for International Macroeconomics at Oxford, David is a hallowed name in Oxford. He completed his PhD at Cambridge where he worked with Nobel Prize-winning economist, James Meade, who was deeply influenced by John Maynard Keynes. David’s work on macroeconomics reflects the influence of both of these men. In David’s own words his research has focused on three key areas. The first is fiscal and monetary policy within the European Monetary Union and its implications for reforming the European economic architecture. The second is International Financial Crises, and the implication of these crises for reform of the crisis-management process at the International Monetary Fund. The third is the implications of the fall of the dollar, and of Chinese exchange-rate policy for the reform of the international monetary system.
