by Roger Williamson

​James B. Davies, Professor of Economics at the University of Western Ontario, played a key role in UNU-WIDER’s pioneering research into global personal and household wealth. He describes how he and colleagues developed the intellectual tools to analyse global wealth in his work at UNU-WIDER. He discusses the importance of the Institutes work on the issue and its network of researchers. He has continued this research interest and cooperates with former UNU-WIDER Director Anthony Shorrocks in producing the annual Global Wealth Report published by Credit Suisse Research Institute.
