Stagnation nation? The Economy 2030 Inquiry conference

This event is both online and in personOff Campus,
The UK is facing a decisive decade of economic change, as we emerge from the pandemic, adjust to Brexit, and urgently transition towards a net zero future. Some hope these changes will help us overcome the stagnation that has seen the UK enter the 2020s with low growth and high inequality - be that via the home working revolution or green growth. Others see lower taxes or migration as a silver bullet. But the task of securing stronger, sustainable, inclusive growth that reaches all parts of the UK is much harder than much of this wishful thinking implies: the UK needs a renewed economic strategy to successfully navigate the decade ahead.
The Economy 2030 Inquiry - a collaboration between the Resolution Foundation and the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics, funded by the Nuffield Foundation - hosted a full-day conference to discuss the economic change that the UK is about to live through, and what a renewed economic strategy for the 2020s might look like.
