What Next for Growth in the UK?

LSE Growth Commission panel discussion

Date: Wednesday 2 November 2016
Time: 18:30
Venue: London School of Economics (venue will be confirmed to ticketholders)

Speakers: Vince Cable, Lord Darling, Stephanie Flanders and George Osborne

In 2013 the LSE Growth Commission published a report - Investing for Prosperity, a Manifesto for Growth. Those recommendations were widely discussed and some, notably on infrastructure, turned into concrete action by UK policymakers.

In 2016 the UK now faces new questions about its economic future including its relationship with the EU, the role of industrial policy, and new developments in labour markets. So the Commission is being re-formed and will publish a second chapter of their growth manifesto. Over the next three months they will be holding evidence sessions with academics, policy experts and business leaders. Come along to this event with an esteemed panel who have agreed to feed in to the Commission deliberations as part of this evening event at the LSE. Between them the panel have played a huge role in running and analysing the UK economy over the past decade. Their experience is unrivalled and their views on what the future might hold - and what should be done about it - promise to be fascinating.
