We celebrate our Director's birthday
On Friday 15th to Saturday 16th March we celebrated the illustrious career of Professor Nicholas Crafts (centre director), with a two-day conference. Over 60 delegates attended talks from 16 leading academics, including keynote lectures from Joel Mokyr, Northwestern University, on ‘British Economic Exceptionalism’ and Gavin Wright, Stanford University, on ‘The Rise and Fall of Regional Convergence in the United States’.
The highly enjoyable event was held at the Radcliffe Conference Centre at Warwick University and organised by Sascha Becker, Stephen Broadberry and Bishnupriya Gupta.
