Research interests

Edmund Cannon's interests lie mainly on the edges of macroeconomics, in long-run economic development and pensions/savings. He has done research on money illusion, productivity, regional growth rates, the rôle of financial markets and transport and the effect of demographic change. He is a leading economist on the topic of annuities on which topic he has written a book with Ian Tonks (University of Bath) and is currently working on pensions and the consequences of actuarial projection for annuity pricing. A completely separate area of research with Liam Brunt (NHH, Bergen) is on historical market integration.

He has a strong commitment to the idea that teaching and research are complementary. He currently teaches econometrics and material on the banking crisis; he is on the board of the Economics Network, which promotes good teaching practice in higher education; and he has done several small pieces of pedagogical research.
