Political Economy

Focusing on ideas and institutions to support inclusive, sustainable growth and shared prosperity across the whole of the UK, this research area links new monetary, fiscal and financial frameworks developed by the Macroeconomic Policy Team to the regions, sectors and households.

Using our regional, sectoral and household-level models, we are able to generate real-time data, analyse economic and social trends and devise transformative policies. This includes regional regeneration and a more granular understanding of the Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish economies, tackling particular policy problems such as gambling-related harms or how to make our tax system more progressive and enhancing the public understanding of economics.
