Tackling The UK’s Toxic Combination Of Low Growth And High Inequality

Resolution Foundation fringe event at Labour Party Conference 2022.

The UK is set for a decade of profound economic change – from the impact and aftermaths of the Covid-19 and energy bills crises, to navigating a new future outside the EU and urgently transitioning towards a low carbon economy. How might economic change play out over the coming decades, and what can we do to shape that change so that the UK emerges with strong, shared and sustainable prosperity?

Topics covered will include:

  • How to grapple with the immediate challenge of this winter’s cost of living crisis;
  • How to encourage growth that is felt throughout the country;
  • Where does inequality reduction fit into a pro-growth strategy;
  • How can we make the Net Zero transition an inequality reducing one.
