Economy 2030 Inquiry: six months on
19 November 2021
It is six months since the launch of The Economy 2030 inquiry – a two-year project that will examine the scale and impact of economic change that the UK is living through in the 2020s, and set out a plan for successfully navigating it.
Researchers from the Resolution Foundation and CEP are publishing reports and discussing the impact of Covid-19, Brexit and the net-zero transition on the British economy.
Below we help you catch up with what’s going on – and give a taste of what’s up next.
As the inquiry continues, this research together with input from citizens’ juries, will inform the development of policy proposals on how to support living standards, ensure decent jobs and increase resilience.

The launch report - The UK's decisive decade - sets out the scale and nature of the challenges that the 2020s may bring. It makes the case for the impact of these changes to be managed well through a renewed economic strategy.
