We are delighted to announce the continuation of the lecture series
jointly organised by NIESR and Cambridge University Press. The
Sir Richard Stone Lecture Series is a series of lectures by the
world's leading academic economists.

Sir Richard Stone (1913-1991) was awarded the Nobel Prize in
Economics in 1984 for his work on the development of systems of
national accounts. Much of this work was published jointly by the
Department of Applied Economics in Cambridge and the National
Institute of Economic and Social Research. The first volume,
containing his estimates of consumer spending and a statistical
analysis of consumer behaviour which is at least as important
records at the start of the Preface that "The detailed investigation of
consumers' expenditure.... was begun at the National Institute of
Economic and Social Research in 1941" and acknowledges the
financial support of the National Institute. It is with this in mind that
the National Institute is proud to name this the Sir Richard Stone
Lecture Series.

We are delighted that Professor Danny Quah, Professor of
Economics at the London School of Economics and Political
Science, has agreed to present the lecture in 2002. The topic of his
presentation will be "growth and distribution". Professor Quah's
work is centred on growth (development, distribution, technology);
geography; the internet and the weightless economy; information
and communications technology; globalization; intellectual
property; and science and technology. Current affiliations include
the Technology and Growth programme at the Centre for Economic
Performance at LSE, the International Macro programme at the
Centre for Economic Policy Research, and the MacArthur
Foundation Network on Social Interactions and Economic
Inequality. Professor Quah also directs, at LSE, the Andrew Mellon
Programme for the Study of the Weightless Economy and
Information Technology. He has participated in Global Dimension
activities.

There will be two presentations on successive days. The first will
take place in the Oak Room at the Bank of England, Threadneedle
St, London, EC2R 8AH on Tuesday 2nd July 2002. This will be
introduced by Professor Charles Bean. The second, which will be
of a more technical nature, will be held at NIESR, 2 Dean Trench
St, Smith Square, London, SW1P 3HE on Wednesday 3rd July
2002. Both events begin at 5.00p.m. and conclude promptly at
6.30p.m., when drinks will be served. There will be the opportunity
for both formal questions after the talk and informal discussion over
drinks.

I do hope that you will be able to attend one or both of the lectures.
In order to comply with the Bank of England's security
requirements it is necessary that all those who intend to attend the
lecture held there notify us in advance. Please let me know
whether you are able to join us for either lecture.
