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.

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.


Most information about my teaching is on Blackboard.  I am currently the unit directer and lecturer for two units: ECON20020 Econometrics (QM3) and ECON30065 Current Economic Problems.

My research interests lie broadly in the area of macroeconomics, especially in long-run economic development. More specifically I have done research on productivity, regional growth rates, the role of financial markets, agricultural history and the effect of demographic change and pensions on the macroeconomy. More topical recent research includes an analysis of the UK annuity market, which has huge implications for the pensions industry and a study of the effect of the introduction of the Euro.
