Rebuilding Macroeconomics is a research initiative funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) with the long-term aim of transforming macroeconomics back into a policy-relevant social science. It provides recommendations to the ESRC on suggestions for the future shape and direction of research in macroeconomics.

Professor Moore is actively involved in the application of social science insights to policy at all levels and is committed to involving grassroots communities in the production of new types of knowledge through ‘citizen science’. Moore challenges traditional economic models of growth arguing that to flourish communities, businesses and governments need to engage with diversity and work within environmental limits.

As well as being a Management Group Member, she is also Principal Investigator of the ‘Developing an Economy of Belonging’ project which explores the interactions between social security and popular acceptance of globalisation and aims to shed light on the relationship between a sense of belonging and economic development.

Professor Moore joins Dr Angus Armstrong (Director of the Rebuilding Macroeconomics Network and Chief Economic advisor to Lloyds Banking Group), Professor Roger E.A Farmer (Professor of Economics at the University of Warwick), Professor J. Doyne Farmer (Director of the Complexity Economics program at the Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School) and Professor David Tuckett (Director of the Centre for the Study of Decision-Making Uncertainty at UCL in the Faculty of Brain Sciences) on the Management Team.
