UK Economy

What institutions are needed to sustain UK economic growth?

The CEP has produced a number of in-depth reports addressing questions specific to the UK economy. These include the findings from two Growth Commissions (2013 and 2017) which considered why there is a wide variation in productivity across firms within the same industry, why UK productivity lags behind comparator countries and why productivity growth has slowed. The 2017 Growth Commission also addressed new questions arising from Brexit.

The Industrial Strategy series of papers brings together CEP research to inform the UK Industrial Strategy.

The CEP has also published an Atlas of Industry in Britain, setting out maps and charts on firms' locations, together with geographic measures of employment, productivity and innovation. This revealed facts about the pattern of UK economy, which challenged the prevailing wisdom.
