The National Institute of Economic and Social Research is delighted to host a seminar where Mai Chi Dao (IMF) will present the analytical chapter on Understanding the Downward Trend in Labour Income Shares from the IMF's latest World Economic Outlook.
This conference is designed to coincide with the UK triggering Article 50 and starting its process to withdraw from the EU. Our aim is to look in greater detail and some of the critical issues that will follow. These include what UK Free Trade Agreements might contain and what will be the negotiating priorities, the economic consequences of no longer being within the legal boundary of the European Court of Justice and what the industrial policy should look like. We will close with a panel session on how economists can most effectively communicate with the public over this period.
"We need to think of economic policy as some path co-ordinating monetary, financial and fiscal policy. The economic landscape that has been outlined implies some new cyclical and structural economic policy options facing the UK. These concepts will be discussed in this final lecture of the year."
