The Big Economy Debate

How Can Britain Tackle The Cost-of-Living Crisis And Build A Better Future?

Resolution Foundation fringe event at Labour Party Conference 2022. This event is sponsored by Natwest.

Britain is braced for an acute cost of living crisis facing households and business this winter, and the squeeze is set to continue to well into next year. This latest squeeze is set against a broader backdrop of low growth and high inequality that has dogged Britain for decades. In this event we will discuss the challenges and opportunities that economic change brings for people, places and firms.

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;
  • How the UK should transition towards a Net Zero economy.
