Regardless of which party emerges victorious on the morning of 5 July, the economic challenges facing the country will be stark. The UK’s poor productivity performance, coupled with recent anaemic rates of growth and persistent inflation, has led to a rise in inequality across both regions and households. For policymakers, the question of how these persistent problems should be addressed remains.

Drawing on work that was recently conducted with the support of the Nuffield Foundation, the authors of the briefings will summarise their findings and policy recommendations to tackle what we believe are the five main priorities: improving productivity; focusing on the transition to net-zero; raising living standards; reforming the fiscal framework to support growth; and moving towards a long-term assessment of economic objectives when deciding tax and spending plans.

We are delighted to be joined by Mark Franks (Director of the Welfare Programme at the Nuffield Foundation) and Ivor Crewe (former Master of University College, Oxford and former President of the Academy of Social Sciences) who will offer comments.

Attendees will benefit from expert analysis and have an opportunity to further explore the findings by questioning the panel.
