Dear Colleague,

Welcome to our October newsletter after a brief summer hiatus. 

Summer has ended abruptly with some dramatic financial events following the ‘not so’ mini-budget which I attempt to explain in a blog here.

We are pleased to announce the winners of our annual competition, Complexity in Macroeconomics. The winners are John Pougué-Biyong and Valentina Semenova, University of Oxford, From Micro to Macro: Understanding the social dynamics behind political and economic change.

We received a number of very high quality entries. The runners-up were Joël Foramitti, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona; and András Borsos, Complexity Science Hub Vienna, Bence Méro, Zsuzsanna Hosszú, Zsolt Olá, and Nikolett Vágá, Central Bank of Hungary. We will organise an online event later this year at which the prize winners will present their work.

On 3rd and 4th October a conference at the Royal Society is being held on Confronting Radical Uncertainty, organised by three prominent Rebuilding Macro colleagues, Professors David Tuckett, David Good, and Leonard Smith. The event looks excellent and is open to the public.

Our colleague William Hynes at the New Approaches to Economic Challenges unit of the OECD has recently published paper in the International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction entitled Resilience stress testing for critical infrastructure.

A new exciting series of Soundbites and Seminars organised by the Institute for Global Prosperity (IGP) is starting and are open to the public and well worth attending.

Please contact Richard at if you have any questions or suggestions.

Thank you and best wishes,
Angus Armstrong
Director, Rebuilding Macroeconomics
