How can we ensure that we have an economy that works for everyone?
Brexit, Trump and the rise of left and right wing populism are different manifestations of the same phenomenon – a widespread call to end business as usual. The politics of the left behind is now the epicentre of uncertainty. But as Britain seeks to carve out a new place in the world for itself, do we have an unprecedented opportunity to rethink our social and economic priorities?
The Inclusive Growth Commission was set up in April 2016 to identify practical ways to make inclusive growth a reality. Chaired by Stephanie Flanders, former economics editor of the BBC and Chief Strategist (UK and Europe) for J P Morgan, the Commission is calling on all leaders – in business, civil society, public service and government – to make inclusive growth our working definition of economic success.
The UK government has set out an ambitious goal to create an economy that works for everyone, not just the privileged few. At this event the Commission will launch its final report which will outline a practical roadmap for a more inclusive economy, where everyone can benefit from greater prosperity.
Panel to include Stephanie Flanders, Commission Chair and Chief Market Strategist for the UK and Europe, J P Morgan Asset Management; Tim Besley, School Professor of Economics and Political Science, LSE and Irene Lucas CBE, Chief Executive, Sunderland City Council.
