Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) This organization at the London School of Economics "is
inter-disciplinary, with researchers from economics, industrial
relations, psychology, sociology and management. The research
produced focuses on a wide range of areas, notably labour markets,
unemployment, wages, human resources, international trade and the
transition economies." More specifically, "The CEP ... primarily
aims to examine: firstly, why some firms persistently succeed
while others do not; and secondly, at the level of the nation, why
some countries' economies work better than others." The director
is Richard Layard.
Available material includes information on their publications,
working papers, schedule of events, information on conferences,
lectures and seminars, extensive material on their research
programs, and databases.
