Going for Growth Part 2


This event from the UK think tank the Centre for Policy Studies will host the celebrated entrepeneur and commentator John Mills to discuss the problem of stagnating growth.

The Centre for Policy Studies recently launched a major lecture series, ‘Going for Growth’, on how we can tackle the big problems in our economy. A series of leading thinkers would be interviewed by leading commentators on their views.

In the second part of this series, the celebrated entrepreneur and commentator John Mills will discuss the problem of stagnating growth, and how it can be fixed. Speaking on Challenging the Consensus – How To Get the UK Growing at 3.5% Per Annum Like The Rest of The World, John will offer a quantitative and evidence-based strategy to overcome slow growth. John argues that we must raise our ambitions on growth, blaming our poor economic record on an economy that is too heavily weighted towards services. The best way around this, John argues, is to use market incentives to drive up investment in our industrial heartlands.

After John’s remarks, Liam Halligan, the star economics columnist at The Sunday Telegraph, will discuss these arguments in further detail with John before chairing a Q&A session with the audience.

Refreshments will be served and there will be time at the end of the event to continue the discussion informally. It should be a fascinating evening, and we would love for you to join us.
