Wendy Carlin

Professor of Economics, UCL; CEPR Research Fellow

Wendy Carlin (DPhil Oxford University, 1987) is Professor of Economics at UCL. Her research focuses on macroeconomics, institutions and economic performance, and the economics of transition. She was Joint Managing Editor of Economics of Transition with Philippe Aghion for more than a decade. She has published papers with a number of co-authors on subjects including economic restructuring in transition; ownership, finance and growth; competitiveness and export performance; competition and growth in transition; the Eurozone crisis; German economic performance; and new Keynesian macroeconomics.

With David Soskice, she is the author of three macroeconomics books, the most recent of which is Macroeconomics: Institutions, Instability and the Financial System (OUP, 2015). Their books have led the way in modernising the teaching of macroeconomics by introducing the IS/PC/MR model for open and closed economies and by integrating the financial system. She directs the international collaborative CORE (Curriculum Open Access Resources for Economics) project (www.core-econ.org), which has produced a new free online introduction to economics. She is a member of the Expert Advisory Panel of the UK Office for Budget Responsibility and a Council Member of the Royal Economic Society. In 2015, she was awarded the CBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list for services to economics and public finance.
