Joe Perkins, Senior Vice President and Head of Research at Compass Lexecon will give a lecture on Energy suppliers, cane toads and regulatory intervention.

The British energy market is in crisis, with high consumer prices, many supplier failures and a strong desire for interventions to fix the problems. While the scale of problems is even greater than in the past, this is not a new phenomenon – energy markets, like football referees, are barely noticed when things are going well, but become the focus of great controversy whenever they go wrong.  Joe Perkins will talk about how we reached this position, and what the history of cane toads in Australia might have to teach us. He will also discuss the implications for how regulation should be designed, both in energy markets and elsewhere, and how economics (and PPE) can help.
