Britain's political economy and the 2015 election

Inclusive growth and wealth creation policies that should be at the front of party manifestos

In the final weeks of parliament and ahead of the budget and manifesto launches, this breakfast roundtable event will bring together leading economic commentators with politicians, business figures, policymakers and experts to discuss the elements of a progressive long-term economic plan for the UK – and what should be at the forefront of all the party manifestos. The meeting will assess the long-term strengths and weaknesses of the British economy ahead of the election.

The occasion will also mark the launch of a new Policy Network and IPPR pamphlet, Towards a Progressive Capitalism in Britain: Pillars for a New Political Economy (edited by Patrick Diamond, Tony Dolphin and Roger Liddle). Copies will be distributed at the event.

Speakers:
David Sainsbury, former minister of science and innovation and author of Progressive Capitalism: How to achieve Economic Growth, Liberty and Social Justice
Liam Byrne, shadow minister for universities, science & skills and chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Inclusive Growth
Anatole Katletsky, chair of the Institute of New Economic Thinking and author of Capitalism 4.0
Deborah Hargreaves, director, High Pay Centre and former business editor, The Guardian
John Plender, senior editorial writer and columnist, The Financial Times
