We would like to thank you for your support of National Institute’s work during 2015. Our continuing presence in academic and policy debates and reputation for high quality and independent research gives us much to celebrate as we approach 2016.
2015 saw the National Institute refocus on 5 key research programmes – Financing Britain, Macroeconomics, Productivity Performance, Social Mobility, and UK, Europe and Devolution. Our highlights include:
- 14 discussion papers on topics ranging from the likelihood socioeconomic background plays a part in pay growth in high-status jobs, to the sustainability of Scotland’s public finances.
- Our blogs have looked at key issues such as migration, the EU, and welfare.
- The National Institute Economic Review assessed the economic record of the coalition government, looked at the latest in sports economics, considered the economics of UK constitutional change, and examined unconventional monetary policy.
- We have held over 30 events with speakers and guests from around the world
- We launched a new video examining the facts about migrants’ access to welfare benefits
