New research findings from the CEP.

CentrePiece magazine features new research from the CEP. CentrePiece

In the latest issue (Summer 2019):

  • Trade and deskilling: how the post-referendum sterling depreciation hurt workers
    Swati Dhingra and colleagues show that the big drop in the value of the pound after the Brexit vote led to a fall in both wages and training.

  • In brief...Brexit and outward investment by UK firms
    Thomas Sampson and colleagues confirm that UK firms in the services sector are moving production into EU countries in anticipation of Brexit.

  • The impact of the 2018 trade war on US prices and welfare
    Stephen Redding and colleagues estimate the effects of Trump's tariffs on domestic consumers and the firms that import foreign goods.

  • In brief...Globalisation and its discontents
    Josh De Lyon and Elsa Leromain report on CEP’s Trade Week, which brought together researchers and policy-makers to discuss the recent trend towards protectionism, its causes and directions for future policy.

  • Firm size, productivity and pay in today’s service economy
    Giuseppe Berlingieri and colleagues reveal that in the new service economy, it is productivity not firm size that matters for wages.

  • Employee wellbeing: the impact on productivity and firm performance
    Christian Krekel and colleagues ask whether companies with happier staff see improvements in the bottom line.

  • Workers’ falling share of firms’ profits
    Pawel Bukowski and colleagues demonstrate that UK companies share profits with employees far less today than in the 1980s and 1990s.

  • Healthy Minds: the positive impact of a new school curriculum
    Grace Lordan and Alistair McGuire evaluate a new secondary school curriculum on physical health, emotional health and behaviour.

  • Jihadi attacks, the media and anti-Muslim hate crime
    Ria Ivandic and colleagues find that real-time media coverage underpins the surge in local hate crimes after an international terror attack.
