Personal profile

Research interests

Edmund Cannon's research is predominantly in applied economics on the boundaries between microeconomics and macroeconomics. He has published research on long-run economic development, regional growth rates and money illusion. Currently he has two main areas of research (which are unrelated to each other): (i) historical grain markets and the causes and consequences of more efficient and integrated markets; (ii) pensions, particularly the annuity market, and other types of insurance. He is a leading economist on the topic of annuities on which topic he has written a book with Ian Tonks (School of Accounting and Finance at Bristol) and advised the UK government.

Prof Cannon has a strong commitment to the idea that teaching and research are complementary and is on the Executive Group of the Economics Network, which promotes good teaching practice in higher education. He has done several small pieces of pedagogical research.
