ANDREW JACKSON

PhD CANDIDATE

Andrew is a PhD student working on the systems dynamics theme in CUSP.

Andrew’s research involves building stock-flow consistent models in order to analyse the macroeconomic effects of a transition to a low carbon economy, with a particular focus on the possible routes by which high carbon assets may become stranded. He is supervised by Tim Jackson and Angela Druckman.

Andrew has a degree in economics and a master’s degree in development economics, both from the  University of Sussex. After finishing his master’s he worked for several years as Head of Research for a think tank that that specialises in research into monetary and banking systems. During this time Andrew authored several papers and two books: “Where does money come from? A guide to the UK banking system” (with Josh Ryan Collins, Tony Greenham and Richard Werner), and “Modernising Money. Why our monetary system is broken and how it can be fixed” (with Ben Dyson).

Along with his interest in the economic effects of a transition to a low carbon economy, Andrew is also interested in post-Keynesian macroeconomics, monetary economics and stock-flow consistent modelling.
