Hamish Low

Hamish LOW is the James Meade Professor of Economics at the University of Oxford and a Professorial Fellow at Nuffield College. He is also a Research Fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS).

Hamish’s research is focused on three connected sets of issues: first, what sort of uncertainty do individuals face over their life-times; second, how do individuals respond to this uncertainty; and third, what is the role of government, especially through social insurance, in mitigating this uncertainty. The uncertainty that individuals face is partly due to economic risks (future wages or employment, value of their assets, such as housing and pensions), and economy-wide risks (recessions or financial contractions). Individuals also face risks to their health and to family structure, and these risks often have economic implications. These issues are both microeconomic and macroeconomic, which are addressed using computer simulation and structural econometrics to model and estimate realistic economic environments. 

Hamish LOW will present a paper, joint with Thomas F. CROSSLEY and Peter LEVELL, at the next Departmental Seminar on the theme:
