Reflections on the Budget

Thursday 20 March 2014 Public Finances and the Economy

At this private roundtable held the morning after the Budget, Jonathan Portes – Director of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research – analysed some of the Budget’s key announcements and implications.

His presentation was followed by short responses from Vicky Pryce (Economist and business consultant ), Professor Tony Travers (LSE) and Ben Page (chief executive of Ipsos MORI) and by a general discussion around the table of the major themes of the Budget.

The event is one of a regular series of ‘morning-after’ sessions hosted by the Resolution Foundation to provide early analysis of each Autumn Statement, Budget or Spending Review.
