Amelia Fletcher has been appointed by Philip Hammond to undertake the Furman Review of competition in the digital economy. She will join Professors Diane Coyle, Derek McAuley and Philip Marsden, together with Professor Jason Furman, former economic adviser to Barack Obama.  While this work is focused on digital issues, there is a strong behavioural slant to the work, since many of the competition issues in fact arise due to consumer behavioural biases of one sort or another.

The inaugural meeting of this new independent expert panel looking took place in Downing Street on 19 September 2018. The panel will run until early 2019 and its work will culminate in a final report of recommendations for the government. Over the course of the review, the panel will meet with a wide range of academics, businesses and representative groups. A call for evidence will be launched, giving people the chance to have a say.

You can read more about the review on the Government's Website.
