Finance Group Macroeconomic Policy and Forecasting

About us

The Macroeconomic Policy and Forecasting (MPF) Research Network aims to produce world-class research in areas of macroeconomics, econometrics and forecasting. We aim to develop strong network links with academic and policy making institutions both to enhance our research impact and support research-led teaching and learning of relevance to business and policymakers.

Our world class research has been supported by various funding bodies (including the ESRC and the ONS). MPF members hold prestigious and influential editorial roles at top econometrics journals; their recent research outputs have been published in journals including the Review of Economic Statistics, the Journal of Econometrics and the Journal of Business and Statistics; and their past research had a substantial impact in the academic community as evidenced by high citation numbers (Google Scholar and Scopus). In addition to this strong impact of MPF research in academia, our research and forecasting practices, in particular the Warwick Business School Forecasting System, have met an enthusiastic audience from professional forecasters in institutions such as the Bank of England and the National Institute of Economic and Social Research with whom we maintain close relations.
