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.
