A noted City of London economist, British government economic advisor and newspaper columnist
Roger Bootle made his name with his direct approach and ability to forecast major economic events from the credit crunch to the property crash and issues within the European Union.
What Roger Bootle's clients say
"Roger Bootle is one of the best interpreters of modern capitalism around. This account of the crisis and what it means is as important as it is accessible."
"This book will stand out in the explosion of financial crisis literature. Roger Bootle is one of the top, practical economists in the financial world but he is not afraid to tackle the bigger, deeper questions around the future of capitalism, the role of markets and government."
"Scores for content and presentation both a maximum 5/5. (Convention average 3.8/5 and 3.7/5 respectively.)"
"Compelling prescriptions from an economist unusually able to speak with authority because unlike most of his peers, Bootle spotted that the boom was unsustainable."
"Roger was absolutely fantastic, his presentation was inspiring, very interesting and he managed to present it in a very entertaining way."
"An excellent speaker with just one major problem - he has set a high standard for our next speaker to follow!"
Roger Bootle's 2023 biography
Roger Bootle is chairman of Capital Economics, one of the world’s largest independent macroeconomics consultancies, which he founded in 1999. Roger is also an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries. He was formerly Group Chief Economist of HSBC and a Visiting Professor at Manchester Business School. Under Chancellor Kenneth Clarke he was appointed to the Government’s panel of Independent Economic Advisers, the so-called “Wise Men”. From 1997 to 2017 he was a Specialist Adviser to the House of Commons Treasury Committee. In 2012, Roger was named Economics Commentator of the Year and, together with a team from Capital Economics, he won the Wolfson Prize, the second biggest prize in Economics after the Nobel.
Roger Bootle studied at Oxford University and then became a Lecturer in Economics at St Anne’s College, Oxford. Most of his subsequent career has been spent in the City of London.
Roger has written many articles and several books on economics. His latest book, Making a Success of Brexit and Reforming the EU, is the 4th edition of The Trouble with Europe. This book follows The Trouble with Markets and Money for Nothing, which were widely acclaimed. His earlier book, The Death of Inflation, published in 1996, became a bestseller and was subsequently translated into nine languages. Initially dismissed as extreme, The Death of Inflation is now widely recognised as prophetic. Roger is also joint author of the book Theory of Money, and author of Index-Linked Gilts.
Roger appears frequently on television and radio and is also a regular columnist for The Daily Telegraph.
