John Moore awarded CBE

Professor John Moore recognised in Queen’s birthday honours for services to economics.

John Moore, Principal Investigator for the MacCaLM Project and Professor of Economics at the Universities of Edinburgh and LSE, is recognised in the Queen’s birthday honours as a Commander of the British Empire.

“This is a very well deserved recognition of John Moore’s deep contribution to economics. His work addresses some of the most important questions in both microeconomics and macroeconomics. What determines the boundaries between firms and markets? How can we model the incompleteness of contracts? What are the frictions that inhibit financial contracting, and cause the financial system to malfunction? Why is it that problems in financial markets provoke and exacerbate difficulties elsewhere in the economy? John’s answers to these questions, arrived at in collaboration with his two principal co-authors, Oliver Hart (Harvard) and Nobuhiro Kiyotaki (Princeton), have profoundly affected the discipline of economics, and provide a firm foundation for applied work and policy analysis.”

Simon Clark – Head of the School of Economics, University of Edinburgh

John is the second MacCaLM Investigator to be awarded a CBE, joining David Miles who was awarded the honour in 2015 for services to monetary policy.

Everyone involved in the MacCaLM project wishes John warm congratulations on this fantastic achievement.

Update: John Moore collected his CBE at Buckingham Palace in November 2017.
