Professor Moore is the Founder and Director of the Institute for Global Prosperity (‘IGP’) and the Chair in Culture Philosophy and Design at University College London (UCL). A globally recognised academic on prosperity, Professor Moore is a political, economic and social policy reformer in the tradition of Seebohm Rowntree, William Beveridge and Beatrice Webb. Professor Moore challenges decades old social, economic and political orthodoxies on growth and prosperity and argues that rebuilding prosperity requires not just radical, brave economic and social policy on a scale not seen since the 1942 Beveridge Report, but an actual redefinition of prosperity and policy-making.
Professor Moore argues that if our post-pandemic recovery and Levelling Up is to be felt by everyone in the UK, then it must focus on the relationship between individual lives – their quality, aspiration and purpose – and the larger systems and constraints within which they are embedded. Top-down macroeconomic interventions such as investment in road and house building, might boost GDP, but leaves the prosperity and feelings of many people unchanged.
Professor Moore has written a range of articles and opinion pieces for the Financial Times, The Conversation, The Guardian, The Times as well as, The Local Government Chronicle. She was appointed to the expert panel of the Dasgupta Review, commissioned by HM Treasury, UK Government. She has spoken at numerous events and conferences as a keynote speaker and panellist. She was a regular co-presenter of the BBC World Service programme 'My Perfect Country' and has appeared on ‘Business Daily’, ‘The Why Factor’ and BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thinking Allowed’ programme.
