The Rt Hon Sir John Redwood

MA, DPhil, PC
Distinguished Fellow since 2007
MP for Wokingham
I am currently working on the conduct of monetary policy and the role of Central Banks in the Credit Crunch and its aftermath in the UK, USA and Euro area from 2006. I am examining whether you can claim any democracy has an independent Central Bank, given the various changes of approach and changes to the powers of the Central banks that took place in the UK and the Euro area over this period.
