  • The UK's self-employed workers: who they are and what they need
    Jack Blundell is developing a typology of self-employed workers, in part to identify vulnerable groups who may benefit from policy support.

  • People, places and politics: the challenge of 'levelling up' the UK
    Henry Overman assesses policies to address the wide disparities in economic performance between towns, cities and regions.

  • In brief...Swings and silicon roundabouts: does cluster policy work?
    Max Nathan evaluates a flagship programme set up a decade ago to accelerate the growth of East London's Tech City.

  • The cost of being young: measuring intergenerational consumer prices
    Rahat Siddique explores an important aspect of the economic landscape facing the UK's young adults ? the 'millennial' generation.

  • In brief...Mismatched students and universities
    Gill Wyness and colleagues find that many disadvantaged students attend less academically prestigious courses than their A-level attainment merits.

  • TV superstars: how a new technology disrupted the entertainment industry
    Felix Koenig explains how the rollout of TV in mid-twentieth century America benefited a handful of superstars but few other entertainers.

  • In brief...Pupil exclusion in academy schools
