Economy 2030:
The Economy 2030 Inquiry: two years in

19 May 2023

The Economy 2030 Inquiry examines the scale and impact of economic change that the UK is living through in the 2020s, and will set out a plan for successfully navigating this change. 

For the past two years, researchers from the Resolution Foundation and CEP have published reports and discussed the impact of Covid-19, Brexit and the net zero transition on the UK economy. Catch up with what’s been going on since 1 December 2022 below.

The inquiry is a collaboration between the Resolution Foundation and the Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) at the London School of Economics, funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
