Prosperity and Justice: A Plan for the New Economy

The launch of the final report of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice

The Institute for Public Policy Research is delighted to invite you to attend the launch of the final report of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice. This event will take place on Wednesday 5th September9.00-11.30am at 1 Birdcage Walk, Westminster, London SW1H 9JJ.

The UK economy is not working. It is not raising living standards for a majority of the population, young people are set to be poorer than their parents and the nations and regions of the country are pulling further apart. We have longstanding weaknesses of investment, productivity and trade.

The IPPR Commission on Economic Justice was established in 2016 in the wake of the vote to leave the EU to examine the challenges facing the UK economy and to make recommendations for reform. Its final report Prosperity and Justice: A Plan for the New Economy will set out its analysis of the state of the economy and present an ambitious plan for reform - the most significant change in economic policy for a generation.
