The Resolution Foundation think tank and the London School of Economics (LSE) on Tuesday launched a major two-year research programme called The Economy 2030.
The goal of is to analyse “the nature, scale, and context for the economic change facing the UK during the 2020s”.
And its launch document argues that if policymakers and politicians make poor choices in the coming years the UK economy risks a period of decline relative to the other major European economies and “will end this decade closer to Italy than Germany when it comes to economic performance.”
