Sixth Annual Clash of the Titans
Oxford vs. Cambridge vs. LSE
Economic Predictions for 2017
Supported by PwC
The Clash of the Titans events feature academics and notable alumni from the top three economics departments in the country (Oxford, Cambridge, and LSE) giving their forecasts for what will happen to the UK economy in 2017 in the aftermath of Brexit. We track their performance over the course of the following year, and we'll announce the winner at next year's Clash. You can see the performance of last year's Titans, as well as members of the general public, by clicking here, and there is a list of all the previous winners here.
This year's event will once again by chaired by Andrew Sentance, Senior Economic Adviser to PwC and former member of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee, and promises to be another entertaining and informative evening.

The Cost of Preventing Blackouts
How to Check the Health of the UK Electricity Supply Sector
The Economic Research Council has commissioned a report from John Constable (Director of the Renewable Energy Foundation), which highlights the key issues surrounding the UK’s current energy policy. The UK’s energy policy over the last two decades has been a disaster, and recent developments have only papered over the cracks. The only long-term solution is to increase base load supply with sustainable and reliable electricity generation.
