The quest for growth: ideas for a new political economy and a more responsible capitalism
08:00 – 17:00
City of London
Policy Network hosted an all day conference debating how Britain can develop policies that could support growth both in the short and long term against the background of a difficult economic and financial situation.
To this end, senior practitioners and experts from Britain and other parts of Europe will debated around four different themes:
From debt crisis to growth: the return of macroeconomics?
Industrial policy: a new role for the state in economic policy?
Research, science & innovation: how to foster greater entrepreneurialism?
Labour market, skills and inequality: how do we build an economy that works for
