Full Profile

One of the City of London’s best-known economists and leader of a team that recently won the Wolfson economics prize, Roger Bootle runs the consultancy, Capital Economics, which specialises in macroeconomics and the economics of the property market. He is also Economic Adviser to Deloitte, a Specialist Adviser to the House of Commons Treasury Committee and an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries. He was formerly Group Chief Economist of HSBC and, before the change of government, he was appointed one of the Chancellor’s panel of Independent Economic Advisers, the so-called “Wise Men.”

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.

He has written many articles and several books on monetary economics. His most recent book is Money for Nothing which correctly anticipated the current financial crisis and has been widely acclaimed. This follows the success of The Death of Inflation, published in 1996, which became a best-seller 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 is currently preparing a new book entitled The Trouble with Markets about the deep origins of the current financial crisis and the consequences for economies, markets and politics, both domestic and international. It’s wide sweep and broad popular appeal is intended to have very wide readership, much in the manner of The Death of Inflation and Money for Nothing. Both previous books became bestsellers and were translated into several languages. The Death of Inflation correctly forecast a long period of low inflation. Money for Nothing correctly anticipated the property bubble and much of the current crisis. It won the Independent Book Publishers’ Award.

Roger is a regular columnist for The Daily Telegraph and appears frequently on television and radio. He and his team from Capital Economics won the Wolfson economics prize for providing the best essay to answer the question: “If member states leave the Economic and Monetary Union, what is the best way for the economic process to be managed to provide the soundest foundation for the future growth and prosperity of the current membership?”

Keynote Speech


Presenting at a conference of UKIP (United Kingdom Independence Party), Roger Bootle analyses the problems inherent in the Eurozone. He begins, “Let me examine the existential question, when did things go wrong with the Euro? I have a very simple answer, right at the beginning. It was misconceived from the start, and it was badly designed and delivered. It is the economic equivalent of all those other European disasters we know so well, agriculture, fisheries and employment."

Addressing wider issues concerning Europe, he asks, “Did it ever make sense to have a full union, monetary, physical and political, with the current membership of the euro? Germany and Greece? Germany and Italy?"

Analyzing the pro-euro arguments, Roger explains that it was thought that having different currencies created too much red tape and misunderstanding. He explains, “Take all that away, they said, and you unleash a great wave of economic activity which is going to bring Europe to prosperity. That's what they said. It hasn't. They also said the euro would bring converters. It didn't."

Roger Bootle brings his award-winning expertise and experience of working at the highest levels of the City of London and the UK financial system to his presentations. He asks audiences to think about what caused the last financial crisis; he does not conventionally blame the bankers and regulators, but demonstrates that expecting the financial markets to regulate themselves was always going to lead to disaster.

Looking into the future, Roger presents a fascinating if controversial thesis that illustrates the great illusion of the economic bubble, in which there is always a difference between real and illusory wealth. Roger Bootle has twice correctly predicted economic crises; his thoughts on whether or not one is coming in the future are not to be missed.

The Trouble with Markets: Saving Capitalism from Itself
In the spirit of John Kenneth Galbraith and Paul Krugman, Roger Bootle challenges audiences to look at the deep causes of the current financial crisis, what went wrong and how to fix it. Bootle blames the crisis not on bankers and regulators, but on the idea that financial markets can be left alone. This program examines a host of critical questions, including what investors should do with their money in turbulent times.

Money for Nothing: Real Wealth, Financial Fantasies and the Economy of the Future
In his book The Death of Inflation, Roger Bootle rocked the economic establishment with his predictions and was proven right. Now, he embraces controversy again with a fascinating and far-reaching program that analyzes the prospects of deflation and depression and the great illusion of the economic bubble, which represents the difference between real and illusory wealth, or money for nothing. If we can avoid the twin perils of protectionism and a deflationary slump, there is hope for a global leap in real wealth in the future through an acceleration of global trade.

Money for Nothing: Real Wealth, Financial Fantasies and the Economy of the Future
The world is at a critical juncture, poisted delicately between a surge in wealth and a descent into outright recession. In The Death of Inflation, Roger Bootle rocked the economic establishment with his predictions and was proven right.

Now, he embraces controversy again with a fascinating and far-reaching book that analyses the prospects of deflation and depression and the great illusion of the economic bubble, which represents the difference between real and illusory wealth, or money for nothing.

In Money for Nothing, Bootle argues that if we can avoid the twin perils of protectionism and a deflationary slump, there is hope for a global leap in real wealth in the future through an acceleration of global trade.
