Life and career

Elliott was educated at St Albans School, an independent school for boys in St Albans in Hertfordshire in southern England, followed by Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge.

Elliott's areas of particular interest are globalisation, trade, Europe, development, and the interface between economics and the environment. He is on the editorial board of Catalyst, on the board of the Scott Trust, a council member of the Overseas Development Institute, and a visiting fellow at the University of Hertfordshire.

Elliott's book Fantasy Island (2007) argued that the British economy was weaker than it appeared and a recession could dramatically damage its base of services. He supported Britain leaving the European Union.
