Who will succeed Nick Stern

Nick Stern will soon leave his job as the Director of the British Government Economic Service and return to LSE, but who will succeed him? It is clearly hard to find a suitable British candidate, since Stern is an economist of grandeur, having also worked for the World Bank.

Will the successor be a civil servant or a popular academic. A compromise would be someone from the Bank.

Ultimately the decision will also depend on who will be the new Chancellor, when Brown leaves for Number 10 or for good.
