Roger Bootle one of the UK’s best-known economists and respected voices of the current turmoil is currently in huge demand as a keynote and conference speaker at business gatherings and conferences around the world. An engaging, informative and witty speaker, Roger uses his wealth of experience to give audiences valuable insights into the current state of global economics.
Roger Bootle studied at Oxford University where he gained a first class degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics and a B. Phil in Economics. He then became a Lecturer in Economics at St Anne’s College, Oxford. After lecturing at Oxford, Roger became one of the few of his profession to get experience as a dealer, at Citibank. He was formerly Group Chief Economist of HSBC and Lloyds Merchant Bank, and served as advisor to the House of Commons Treasury Committee.
Roger runs the consultancy, Capital Economics, which specialises in macroeconomics and the economics of the property market. He is also Economic Adviser to Deloitte, an Adviser to the Bahrain-based Gulf Finance House, a member of the Shadow Monetary Policy Committee and an Honorary Actuary. Before the change of government Roger was appointed to the Chancellor’s Panel of independent economic forecasters, famously known as ‘The Seven Wise Men.’
He has written many articles and several books on monetary economics. His most recent book The Trouble with Markets: Saving Capitalism from Itself (2011) focuses on the deep origins of the current financial crisis and the consequences for economies, markets and politics, both domestic and international. In Money for Nothing (2004) he correctly anticipated the current financial crisis and has been widely acclaimed. It won the US Independent Publishers’ Business Book of the Year award. This followed on the success of The Death of Inflation, published in 1996, which became a best seller and was subsequently translated into nine languages. Initially dismissed as extreme, The Death of Inflation is now widely recognised as prophetic and won Roger the reputation of being a profound and radical thinker.
Roger is also joint author of the book Theory of Money, and author of Index-Linked Gilts. Roger was formerly a regular columnist for The Times and The Sunday Telegraph and is now a regular columnist for The Daily Telegraph and appears frequently on television and radio.
Roger Bootle’s expertise on World and European economics is a valuable source of information for decision makers around the globe. He has a reputation for originality, forthrightness and insight which few can match. Business leaders will benefit from his astute insights and analytical brilliance of the economic landscape.
