  A recent talk on the four-day week:

Research interests: macroeconomics of fiscal policy, macroeconomics of labour markets, public sector employment, education and human capital, macroeconomics and finance, sovereign ratings.



"No wonder Lord Keynes insisted that the master economist fulfill a set of attributes more extraordinary than those needed for Knighthood or even Sainthood. He must be a mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher... He must contemplate  the particular in terms of the general, and touch abstract and concrete in the same plight of thought. He must study the present in the light of the past for the purposes of the future. No part of man's nature or his institutiom must lie entirely outside his regard. He must be purposeful and disinterested in a simultaneous mood; as aloof and incorruptible as an artist yet sometimes as near the earth as a politician".
