Professor Peter Urwin comments on election results

18 May 2015

Professor Peter Urwin has contributed widely to international coverage of the Conservatives' win in the general election.

Quoted by newspapers such as the Washington Post and the New York Post, Professor Urwin said: "The pound surged against the euro and the dollar on news of a Conservative victory because the markets value continuity and fiscal austerity".

Having recently co-authored a book entitled “It’s the Economy, Stupid: Economics for Voters” Peter has been a coherent and knowledgeable voice about the Tory victory at the polls. His comment also reached other international publications, including VOA in Vietnam and My Ghana Online.
