In 2011, the Society initiated a Policy Lecture series. The inaugural lecture in this series was given by David Miles, External Member of the Monetary Policy Committee. Whereas the Annual Public Lecture series, which has run since 2001, is aimed largely at a sixth form secondary school audience, the Policy Lecture series is an opportunity for leading economists to speak both to academics and to policy-makers and to others interested in the development of economic policy.
The 2012 RES Policy Lecture on Returning to Growth: Lessons from History was given by Professor Nick Crafts (University of Warwick and member of the RES Council and Executive) on Wednesday 17th October at the Bloomsbury Theatre, UCL, London.
