Reflections on the Budget

Thursday 21 March 2013 Public Finances and the Economy

At this private roundtable held the morning after the Budget, John Hawksworth – Head of Macroeconomics at pwc – analysed some of the Budget’s key announcements and implications.

Also giving responses at the event were Peter Kellner (President of YouGov), Vidhya Alakeson (Deputy Chief Executive of the Resolution Foundation) and Jonathan Portes, Director of NIESR.  These were followed by a general discussion around the table of the Budget’s major themes.

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.
