Event description

Description

The Institute for Economic Analysis of Decision Making (InstEAD) Annual Lecture this year will be from Professor James Banks (University of Manchester and Institute for Fiscal Studies).

In the lecture he will present recent evidence on trends in work, disability and health of older adults in England. He will explore the relationship between these trends, and relate them to past policy changes and future policy options. He will also discuss potential future directions and trends in the labour market for older workers and the challenges that these might present for future policy makers.

James Banks is Professor of Economics at the University of Manchester and Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. He is a co-director of the ESRC Centre for the Microeconomic Analysis of Public Policy at the IFS, Co-Principal Investigator of the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing and a Trustee of the Nuffield Foundation. His research focuses on savings, pensions and retirement, as well as on broader issues in the economics of ageing, such as the dynamics of work disability health, physical and cognitive functioning and their associations with paid work and broader socioeconomic status. Prof. Banks is actively involved in working with policy makers and research funders on activities related to policy towards population ageing and to the ongoing collection and use of individual level survey evidence. He has served on expert advisory committees for the Department for Work and Pensions, Department for Health, Government Office for Science, Office for National Statistics, Economic and Social Research Council, Wellcome Foundation, and the US National Institute on Aging.
