Director’s Remarks, November 2018 NIER
Our Director’s Remarks at the Press Conference to launch the November 2018 National Institute Economic Review
"NIESR is the UK's oldest independent economic research institute, and was founded just over eighty years ago on 2nd June 1938. The Institute's original mission was 'to carry out research into the economic and social forces that affect people's lives and to improve the understanding of those forces and the ways in which policy can bring about change'. In the years since its foundation, the Institute's researchers have made many significant contributions in pursuit of that objective. To celebrate the milestone, this edition of the Review brings together five papers by current and former staff members reviewing aspects of the Institute's work."
