David Miles is a British economist. He is a Visiting Professor at Imperial College London and former Chief UK Economist of Morgan Stanley (October 2004 to May 2009). He was appointed to the Bank of England's interest rate-setting Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) from June 2009 to June 2012. In 2003 he produced a report for the Chancellor of the Exchequer to examine why the long-term fixed rate mortgage market is not as popular a product in the UK as in other countries. The report states: "A great many borrowers focus on the initial cost of debt and do not seem to consider carefully how those payments might change relative to their incomes". Miles predicted a substantial fall in real house prices in November 2006. He graduated from Oxford University.

Angela Ann Knight (born Angela Ann Cook 31 October 1950) is the Chief Executive of the British Bankers' Association (BBA). She was formerly a Conservative Party Member of Parliament (MP) representing the constituency of Erewash from 199297, and served as the Economic Secretary to the Treasury from 199597.

David Vines is Professor of Economics at Oxford University and a Fellow of Balliol College and is the Director of the Centre for International Macroeconomics at Oxford. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Centre for Applied Macroeconomic Analysis at the Australian National University, a Research Fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research in London and Scientific Coordinator of the European Union Framework Seven PEGGED Research Programme on the Politics and Economics of Global Governance: the European Dimension. From 1994 to 2000 he was the Director of the Research Programme on Global Economic Institutions of the Economic and Social Research Council. He is a trustee of the Oxford Policy Institute. He formerly held the Adam Smith Chair of Political Economy at the University of Glasgow and in 2002 was a Houblon-Norman Senior Fellow at the Bank of England. Vines was educated at Scotch College, Melbourne, the University of Melbourne, and at Cambridge University. At Cambridge, Vines worked with Nobel Prize-winning economist, James Meade, who was deeply influenced by John Maynard Keynes. Vines' work on macroeconomics reflects the influence of both of these men. His work spans international macroeconomics, the reform of international financial architecture and monetary economics.

Peyton Young graduated from Harvard University and did his postgraduate studies in Mathematics at the University of Michigan
