Global Economics

Paul Dales

Paul Dales is our Chief UK Economist, with overall responsibility for our UK Economics, UK Consumer and UK Markets services. Paul joined Capital Economics soon after it was founded in 1999. He’s spent 10 years covering the UK economy, six years as a senior member of our US economics team and four years as our Chief Australia & New Zealand Economist (during which he set up and ran our Sydney office). He holds degrees in Banking & Finance and Economics from Loughborough and London universities and the UK FSA recognised Securities Institute Diploma.

In 2016, the Australian Financial Review judged him to be Australia’s economist of the year as “he made all the right calls in a market that most chief economists found hard to read”. In 2011, Paul was named Bloomberg’s US house price forecaster of the year. And in 2010, he was part of the US team that was named Wall Street Journal US forecaster of the year.
