Productivity, Trade, and Regional Economies

Why is the UK less productive than similarly advanced nations and what can be done about it? How are the gains from economic growth distributed and why does this matter?  How can the increasing regional disparities be addressed to prevent the widening gap between the different component parts of the United Kingdom?

NIESR has a long record of leading trade, productivity and regional analysis. Working with partners within the devolved nations, as well as with other major research centres, we focus our research on improving the measurement of productivity, understanding the the drivers of firm behaviour and assessing how policy affects households at a regional level.
