Diane Coyle chairs the advisory panel of the Vodafone Socio-Economic Impact of Mobiles research programme, and Enlightenment Economics has worked on six of these reports. The first two were on mobiles in Africa and healthcare. The third report (with Nokia and NSN), on mobile transactions in developing countries was published in 2007. The most recent looked at mobiles in India, and was published in January 2009. The latest report, Making Broadband Accessible for All, in partnership with the Wordwide Web Foundation, was released in May 2011. The next report, on spectrum as a development resource, will be published in spring 2013.
Enlightenment Economics sponsored the publication of What’s The Use of Economics: Teaching the Dismal Science After the Crisis, based on a conference hosted by the Bank of England and Government Economic Service. A follow-up report will be published this spring. We were a partner in the UK’s first Festival of Economics in Bristol on 23-24 November 2012; the second will be on 22-23 November 2013.
