Professor Christopher Sims

9 July 2018

Professor Christopher Sims from Princeton University was a guest at the Oxford-Indiana Macroeconomic Policy Conference in July 2018. The Nobel Prize-winning economist explained in his keynote address 'How to worry about government debt' that a central bank cannot maintain stable inflation unless it has fiscal backing. Sustained, unbacked fiscal expansion must eventually lead to inflation, regardless of monetary policy. The presentation generated a lively discussion in the audience of policymakers, academics and market participants. Updated slides from Professor Sims are available online.

The full programme from the Oxford-Indiana conference is available online.

Several members of the NuCamp team visited the Mini Plant Oxford on November 24th 2017 to see how things have changed since Lord Nuffield started building cars at the site more than a hundred years ago. The body shell production is now almost completely automated by more than a thousand robots, but Lord Nuffield would still have recognised the Henry Ford-style mass production assembly line he pioneered in 1913 to produce his first Bullnose Morris cars.
