CENTRE FOR ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE 2015-2020

Department Name: Centre for Economic Performance

Abstract

Three core questions bind this proposal together: how to foster growth; how to share growth and how to sustain growth

1 HOW CAN WE FOSTER GROWTH? We plan to develop a new Growth Programme focussing on bolstering innovation in its widest sense, both technological and organisational. It will co-ordinate the Centre's growth work agenda and follow up the LSE Growth Commission's policy proposals. Next, the Trade programme will analyse the impact of globalisation with a targeted focus on how to make a dramatic improvement in British export performance. A core policy question is what the UK's future relationship with other countries will be, in particular with the European Union (EU) and South-East Asia. Third, the Education and Skills programme will examine human capital investment by analysing the recent transformation of the educational system using new tools of competition and organisation theory. Two core questions are: have educational reforms worked - especially for the disadvantaged - and, what can be done to improve the intermediate skills base, a long-standing area of UK weakness.

2 HOW CAN WE SHARE THE BENEFITS OF GROWTH? A problem with growth in the decades prior to the global financial crisis was that prosperity was shared very unequally. To study the spatial dimensions of inequality, we propose a new Urban programme. This will emphasise cities as key economic units and address why so much UK growth is concentrated in the South East.This is a key policy issue in the light of the commitment to decentralise power within England by all main UK parties. Following the City Growth Commission, the policy focus will be how local policy makers can help their cities prosper. Alongside the large productivity fall since the crisis, there has been a big fall in real wages - something unique in post-war UK recessions. Some wage stagnation occurred also in the run-up to the crisis, as it has over a longer time in the US. The Labour programme will examine these changes and whether they are linked to the declining share of GDP going to employees across the world. We will look at earnings, income and wealth inequalities across individuals, but also on why women's progress has stalled. In all these aspects, we are interested not just in explaining why growth is unequally shared, but also how we could design institutions and policies that generate a "double dividend" of more growth and less inequality.

3 WHAT KIND OF GROWTH DO WE WANT? Increasing GDP per capita remains important as UK average incomes track this over the long run. But growth must be sustainable, it must deal with environmental challenges, it should expand not undermine people's happiness and it should not be at the expense of social cohesion. Dealing with climate change requires both containing demand for greenhouse gases and stimulating clean technologies and we propose a wide portfolio of green growth projects directed to this. Of course, it is not just technology that affects people's lives - it is also the beliefs and norms that regulate the interactions between people. Growth involves change that has significant impacts on people's lives and neighbourhoods, often causing great stress. Our Community programme will investigate the impact of economic changes (both direct and indirect through changes like immigration) on social cohesion, and will help to develop policies to ensure that growth benefits all communities. CEP has been at the forefront of looking beyond GDP and our Wellbeing programme will ambitiously develop a model of subjective well-being over the life-course, in order to show the quantitative causal impact of factors like parenting, schooling, employment, income and health. Without such knowledge it is impossible for policy-makers to aim effectively at greater wellbeing, even if that is their objective.

Planned Impact

Academics will benefit across global social science as discussed in the previous section. We publish in the world's top economic (and other social science) journals so we clearly benefit academics, especially as we emphasise pushing out the frontier, rather than publishing small increments to the literature.

Improving our knowledge about what drives growth can have a powerful impact on the wellbeing of all people. The power of basic social scientific breakthroughs is that many benefit, even though the effects are long-run and hard to quantify.

Our key non-academic beneficiaries are national and international policy-makers, civil servants, international financial institutions, businesses, journalists, think tanks, NGOs and, above all, the general public. We have discussed our proposal with many users such as BIS, the DE and UK Treasury (see letters of support from Permanent Secretary of HMT and BIS,Head of the NHS and others at http://cep.lse.ac.uk/esrc/ password ESRC32L2014)

We have involved stakeholders in almost all of the proposals. Examples include government agencies, the Bank of England (G1C), BIS (T1A), DECC (G3A), Department of Education. (E1A), European Commission (G2D), HMT (W1C), ILO(G2C), NHS(W2A), OFCOM(U1C), ONS(G2A), UKTI(T2A), UN(W1A), NESTA (G2C);US Census (P1A), World Bank(U1D); Multinationals Coca-Cola (W2B), Google (G3B) McKinsey (P1A), Towers Watson (L1C), United Health (P1A); Start-Ups Crowdcube (G1D), GrowthIntel (G2D), GroveIS (G3C), TechHub (U2D); Charities ARK (E1B) and How to Thrive (W2A), London Rebuilding Society (G3C) NIESR (G2D), and Society of Motor Manufacturers (T2C). Our partnerships with different stakeholders depends on the question at hand and involves discussions at the genesis of a project, sharing of data, analysis and early findings and finally help with events and subsequent dissemination through a variety of mechanisms.

To increase benefits to UK Treasury (the department who make most use of our research) we will build on the success of the CEP/HMT academic associates scheme where individual CEP researchers give early stage pro bono advice on areas of our expertise. We are proposing a series of training events and Executive Education courses to the UK civil service (led by CEP's Daniel Sturm) which will diffuse techniques and CEP research findings.
Our tools for measuring management practices and suggesting improvements (www.managementsurvey.org) will be useful for businesses trying to improve their profitability. We focus on firms which are smaller than those who are usually the customers of major international consultancy firms.

The general public benefits through our wide dissemination. On average, every year we run 164 events. In 2013 we appeared in the print and broadcast media on average 3 times a day and there were 4.66 million website downloads of papers. Our international profile is rising, with 37% of our web visitors and 37% of our media mentions coming from outside the UK. Most of our top ten papers (downloaded more than 50,000 times each during the year) were non-technical presentations of our work, suggesting that our appeal is broad and not confined to academic users. We will produce a professionally produced research magazine, CentrePiece, thrice yearly and reports on those key policy developments to which our research can contribute rigorous evidence. We will press release key pieces of research work each month.
 
Description Our research has always placed a strong focus on the big questions facing the economy and wider society. It has been able to respond flexibly when these change, often leading public debate. Our work on the impact of Brexit, for example, is rooted in the years of theoretical analysis previously undertaken in our Trade Programme. The Centre's research also sets agendas rather than merely reacting to policies as they emerge, as the recommendations on growth and infrastructure from the two LSE Growth Commissions of 2013 and 2017 demonstrate. A defining quality of the way the Centre operates has been to focus different perspectives on the questions under study so that alternative theories can be tested using different models and data. The Centre has developed new methodologies and expertise, analysed large-scale data using robust research designs, and it has collected data where it does not already exist for researchers to use, as well as plugging gaps in research areas when new data emerge. Our overriding aim is to change the way social scientists and policymakers think about the world and to produce empirical research of sufficient breadth and rigour to help formulate - and evaluate - new policies. Over the years, CEP has influenced thinking and policies of almost every government department, the Bank of England, statistical agencies in the UK and abroad, and a wide range of other policy organisations and practitioner groups. Indeed some aspects of CEP's work have entered so deeply into popular discourse that they are no longer identified with the Centre. Selected examples include the benign economic effects of the minimum wage; falling social mobility; the centrality of management quality to firm productivity; and the polarisation of jobs with different skill attributes in the labour market.

Description Advice to House of Lords Select Committee on Economic Affairs Report Building More Homes, July 15th 2016 . . Professor Paul Cheshire as part of a proposal for wider reform of the planning system, suggested that both section 106 and the Community Infrastructure Levy should be abolished and replaced by a single, national development charge of 20 per cent of the sale value of the land. Professor Cheshire stressed that building in line with household projections would not provide enough housing: "The problem with our planning system is that it allocates land on the basis of a forecast of household numbers, not on the basis of a forecast of housing demand or space demand. So we have been systematically undersupplying land since the early 1950s."

Impact Mion advised UK Trade and Investment on the implementation of a Randomized Control Trial to gain sharper insights into the causal impact of the provision of trade services on UK firms. The RCT is currently in its pilot phase and will be based around an export voucher. Firms need to apply to get the voucher to be spent on export support services in the private sector. Some firms will be randomly selected to get the voucher and will be subsequently compared to a control group of firms who applied to the voucher but did not get one. For organisations like this to use such experimental methods is rare.

Impact • The demand model is used to direct the inspections to areas of the highest need / demand for policing, and gives context. What sounds trivial has actually a big impact, as it avoids blanket and undirected inspection, and focuses on the most important areas. This makes it more effective, and cheaper to run. • The forces actively use it to integrate their problem solving (crime prevention) efforts, and to integrate it with other public services. The press report on Cambridgeshire Police use of the model is here: http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/new-police-unit-target-crime-12077495 • Chris Greany - the Commander of the City of London - approves of the usefulness of the model in police work and City of London Police intend to use it to develop proper fraud prevention strategies on the back of it. This will be the first time that such work is based on rigorous research data We intend to take this work forward by presenting to the HMIC board on Tuesday, 21st March 2017 to argue that the CEP's demand model be converted into a fully automated monitoring system, giving both the HMIC and Chief Constables an early warning signal about organisational decline.

Impact 'House of Commons debate on the Spring Budget Following the annual budget announcement, LSE was mentioned in the Commons debate by Stewart Hosie MP (SNP): "The OBR's central forecast is in rather stark contrast to what we already know. The Treasury had reported previously that the UK could lose up to £66 billion from a hard Brexit, and that GDP could fall by almost 10% if the UK reverted to WTO rules, which echoes what the Chair of the Treasury Committee said. Other assessments mirror that. The London School of Economics says: "In the long run, reduced trade lowers productivity." That is a huge problem for the UK. It went on to say:"That increases the cost of Brexit to a loss of between 6.5% and 9.5% of GDP."

Impact The Executive Master in Public Policy (EMPP) is a program that has been co-designed and is co-delivered with the Civil Service. The program equips senior civil servants with the cutting-edge analytical tools required to deliver effective policy in an increasingly complex and inter-dependent world. This initiative builds on the 2012 Civil Service Reform Plan to further professionalise UK policy-making. The degree is aimed at the development of people with the talent and drive to reach the very highest levels of the Civil Service Policy Profession, whose careers will see them working on the biggest issues in public policy, and who therefore need to be proficient ambassadors for the best, most modern and most appropriate approaches to policy development. The program has so far taken in a cohort of 28 civil servants in December 2015 and another 28 in December 2016 who are drawn from across the Whitehall departments. The program is run by a steering committee which is chaired by Chris Wormald who is now the Permanent Secretary of the Department of Health. LSE is represented on the steering committee by the two program directors of the Executive Master of Public Policy, Daniel Sturm and Joachim Wehner, and Andrew Brennen, the executive programs development manager. The steering committee meets regularly to discuss the content of the modules and to focus the curriculum on the most pressing public policy challenges faced by the Civil Service.

Impact Work of CEP's Metcalf the Chair of the Migration Advisory Committee and others from CEP has improved the UK policymakers understanding of the impact of immigration on UK labour markets and public services and has been involved in virtually every significant labour market migration policy decision between 2008-16. Much of the work of the Committee drew on background research carried out by the Centre for Economic Performance. Amongst its impact has been the introduction of greater selectivity in Non EU migration 2007-16 by highlighting the key role played by skilled migrants in raising productivity, enhancing employment and fiscal contribution; and the setting of minimum pay thresholds to prevent employers from undertaking insufficient investment in British human capital. Its analysis of work-related migration since 2008 suggests three main conclusions: migration flows are heavily influenced by other polices; skilled migrants yield positive benefits; and enforcement of minimum standards is vital to ensure our flexible labour market boosts the welfare of British residents.

Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact 21st March 2017 The demand model constructed by Tom Kirchmaier for Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) has been formally presented at the HMIC board and has been very positively received. It was mentioned in the 2015 and 2016 State of Policing report that was laid before Parliament by Sir Tom Winsor. The 2016 report can be found here, with the reference to his work on p. 17 . All empirical reference in the PEEL inspection process are based on this work, with an example being found here. Kirchmaier has subsequently been appointed to the Academic Reference Group of HMIC. The demand model has been used to help direct the inspections to areas of the highest need / demand for policing, avoiding blanket and undirected inspection, and focusing on the most important areas. Such a model makes the inspection system more effective, and cheaper to run. Police forces are now using the model to integrate their problem solving (crime prevention) efforts, and to integrate it with other public services. It was also being used by the Home Office to inform the new Police funding formula (which has subsequently been delayed for political reason). Chris Greany - the Commander of the City of London -tweeted positive commendation of the model to colleagues. City of London is now using the model and data to develop fraud prevention strategies. fGoing forward, the plan is to work on a fully automated monitoring system, giving both the HMIC and Chief Constables an early warning signal about organisational decline. Kirchmaier is also actively working with Police forces nationally and internationally to increase the uptake and incorporation of empirical insights into processes. Internationally, he is working with IADB and the police service of Buenos Aires to understand and improve the emergency call centre (911 calls), and with former HMI Steven Otter QPM on some questions relating to security in Asia, and here in particular Myanmar.

Impact House of Commons Library - Briefing Paper Number 06492, 27 April 2017 p.25 (Valero and Van Reenen work on Productivity Plan)Anna Valero and Professor John Van Reenen of the London School of Economics believe the plan is broadly right but question whether it is radical or coherent enough to make a difference: The Plan identifies the chronic problems which need to be addressed to get our productivity back on track, and sets out the government's solutions. Overall, the analysis and priorities seem broadly right and there are a number of positive steps. For example, the emphasis on planning reforms (especially on housing), road infrastructure and vocational skills. However, much of the Plan simply places existing policies into eight drivers of productivity growth. Given the fact that UK output per hour is around 30 per cent lower than the US, France and Germany, is it really radical and coherent enough to yield the kind of growth we need to catch up with our peers? [] Although there are many individually sensible policies, it is difficult to discern a clear growth strategy emerging from the Plan. Without such a vision, it is likely that shorter term considerations will come to dominate, especially as the parliamentary term wears on.57

Results and Impact For more than a decade, CEP research associate Peter Boone and his colleagues at Effective Intervention have been running health and education programmes in some of the poorest parts of the world. As he recounts here, there have been successes and failures - but the one clear lesson is that while financing is an issue in foreign aid projects, it is by no means the most important one for saving lives or educating young children

Results and Impact Article by Jan-Emmanuel De Neve and Nick Powdthavee Despite growing concern over the economic and social implications of the increasing concentration of wealth among a wealthy elite, we continue to know very little about how the growing gap in wealth and income of the top 1% influences the wellbeing of the other 99%. Together with Richard Burkhauser at Cornell University, we decided to find out. We wanted to estimate how the rising income of the 1% relates to average life satisfaction, even where household income and a country's GDP remain constant. We started our research by asking if income inequality at the very top really matters to the life satisfaction of the average person in a country - the results show that there is a correlation between the two.

Primary Audience Postgraduate students
Results and Impact Presentation of paper entitled Trade and Worker Deskilling. This paper presents new evidence on international trade and worker outcomes, by examining a big world event that produced an unprecedentedly large shock to the UK exchange rate. In the 24 hours in June 2016 during which the UK electorate unexpectedly voted to leave the European Union, the value of sterling plummeted. It recorded the biggest depreciation that has occurred in any of the world's four major currencies since the collapse of Bretton Woods. Exploiting the variation, the paper studies the impact of trade on wages and future earnings potential measured by job related education and training. Wages and training fell for workers employed in sectors where the intermediate import price rose by more as a result of the massive sterling depreciation. Calibrating the estimated wage elasticity with respect to intermediate import prices to theory uncovers evidence of complementarity between workers and intermediate imports. This provides new direct evidence that, in the modern world of global value chains, changes in the cost of intermediate imports act as a important driver of the impact of globalisation on worker welfare. The episode studied also adds to widely expressed, growing concerns about patterns of real wage stagnation in contemporary labour markets.

Results and Impact Most economists expect Brexit to negatively affect the UK economy, but we know much less about the local impacts. Will Brexit exacerbate existing disparities in living standard across the UK, or might it narrow differences? In this lecture we'll consider what we know about local impacts, identify the biggest losers from changes in trade costs and consider what other factors might matter if we want to better understand the likely impact on our towns and cities. This lecture is part of the LSE Programme on Brexit. Swati Dhingra is Lecturer in Economics, Department of Economics. Henry Overman is Professor of Economic Geography, Department of Geography and Environment. Tony Travers is Director of the Institute of Public Affairs, LSE.

Results and Impact Productivity plays a central role in shaping the welfare of societies and the competitiveness of countries. Productivity differences, for instance, explain a large share of the differences in income per capita across countries. This paper investigates the role of productivity heterogeneity across 18 countries over the period 2001-2012. In particular, it analyses the evidence that emerges from the distributed micro-data approach carried out in the OECD MultiProd project. The main outcome of the project is a unique dataset of harmonised crosscountry moments that are representative for the population of firms and comparable across countries even at a detailed industry level. We look at the 90-10 percentile ratio of LP and MFP and show that: i) productivity dispersion is high in both manufacturing and nonfinancial market services; ii) it has increased over time, especially in services; iii) a substantial part of this dispersion comes from differences among firms within the same sector of activity in each country; iv) this within sector dispersion remains the most important component of the overall dispersion for the entire period.

It also provides some initial analysis on whether these predicted impacts are likely to exacerbate or alleviate existing disparities and looks at how the predicted economic impacts of Brexit correlate with voting patterns from the referendum.
