Julian Hodge Institute of Applied Macroeconomics
The aim of the Institute is to carry out research into the behaviour of the UK economy, and to study in particular its relationship with the other economies of Europe.
In May 1999, Cardiff Business School and Julian Hodge Bank announced a major new initiative, the establishment of the Julian Hodge Institute of Applied Macroeconomics. The main aim of the Institute is to carry out research into the behaviour of the UK economy, and to study in particular its relationship with the other economies of Europe.
This research has been given especial relevance by the ongoing discussions on the extra powers regularly requested by the European Union and also by the recent crisis in the eurozone. The Institute's research work further extends across international trade, money and banking, international finance and econometrics, in a collaboration between around twenty academics, mostly in Cardiff, and some thirty PhD students.
The institute's director since it was founded has been Professor Patrick Minford, of Cardiff Business School, who is also the Economic Adviser to Julian Hodge Bank. Apart from its research projects the institute carries on the forecasting and modelling work which Minford began at Liverpool University and has been based mainly in Cardiff for more than a decade, producing forecasts and policy analysis of the UK and other major economies.
