Peter joined the department in 1998 after yo-yoing between academia and consultancy. Since then he has developed courses and people, co-written one textbook with two more to follow all while teaching a unique economics and scenario planning course. His interests are in understanding economic systems and the way they evolve (not usually predictably!) and why they undergo crises and in transmitting that understanding to others, and especially to audiences new to the subject. It’s not hard to grasp, it’s just hard to explain well.
