Liam Brunt joined NHH in 2008. He previously taught at HEC-Lausanne, the London Business School and the Universities of Oxford and Virginia. He was educated at St John’s and Nuffield Colleges in Oxford, where he earned a BA, M.Phil and D.Phil (2000).
His research analyzes the development and performance of the world economy since 1700, especially the roles of new technology and economic institutions – such as land ownership patterns, commodity and financial markets, and intellectual property rights. His research has appeared in international journals such as Journal of Industrial Economics, Journal of Economic History and Economic History Review. His recent work on inducement prizes and innovation – co-authored with Tom Nicholas at the Harvard Business School – has been widely cited in business reviews such as The Economist. He is a member of CEPR and contributes to its policy portal VoxEU.
In spring 2016 he will be on sabbatical at the Guanghua School of Management, University of Peking.
