Geoff Tily has been TUC Senior Economist since 2014, following on from twenty-five years as member of the Government Statistical Service and then Government Economic Service, most recently as a macroeconomic adviser in HM Treasury. His book 'Keynes Betrayed' (2007) is acknowledged as a major contribution to a huge literature on JM Keynes. In 2006 Geoff warned that the build-up of private debt had become unsustainable and was in imminent danger of imploding and causing a major recession. When the financial crisis hit he then argued strongly that Keynesian policies would shorten the consequent recession and that ‘austerity’ would lengthen it.

Programme:

In this Society of Professional Economists course Geoff shares his vast experience of mapping the progress of the UK economy using a wide range of important indicators. The course focusses on the sources of data and how to interpret them. It is a practical experience-based course on how to read macro-indicators and make reasoned judgements as to where the economy has been and is heading, it is not a course on technical macroeconomic modelling.
