The coronavirus pandemic has led to the largest contraction in the UK economy this year in over 300 years. The economic impact will reflect the length of the pandemic as well as the public health restrictions imposed and other voluntary social distancing measures, which has led to a reduction in the demand for goods and services and has adversely impacted the ability of businesses to supply those products. The response to COVID-19 has also had an effect on the ability of National Statistical Institutes (NSIs) to compile estimates of GDP, inflation and the labour market. There have been significant theoretical and practical challenges in compiling these estimates this year, which have been integral in helping policymakers and economists understand the effects of the pandemic so far.Booking is not mandatory but you can book the event on the careers portal here.https://careersportal.royalholloway.ac.uk/leap/events.html?id=3433
This session will take the form of an investigation into one psychiatrist’s relationship with jazz: the late Professor Sean Spence. Although more resources might be available, we will take the position that there are five ‘documents’ available to the investigators whose job is to understand what this particular psychiatrist thought about jazz and its relation to mental health. Is jazz a ‘cause’ of mental illness (or better, distress)? If so, how? Does jazz help to ameliorate mental distress? If so, how? What did Sean Spence have to say? Do you think that his position would be shared by other psychiatrists? What might any/all of the foregoing say with regard to the place of jazz in modern global cultures?
Nathan Woolley studied his UG, MSc and then PhD at Royal Holloway from 2010-2018. Since completing his PhD he has worked for the Government Economics Service (GES) undertaking three economist roles across two Government departments. In his talk he will discuss what it is like to work as a government economist including his experience of communicating good economics to senior policymakers and ministers. He will also give an insight into the entry routes that economists can take to join the GES and the opportunities that a career in Government can bring.
