IFS at 50: The future shape of the state


This event from the UK think tank Institute for Fiscal Studies is part of the ‘IFS at 50’ series, looking at the future shape of the state.

The British economy is going to face a number of big issues over the next fifty years. Whether it is reforming the tax and benefit system, managing an ageing population, or preparing for the workplace of the future, there are plenty of challenges and opportunities ahead.

The role of the state has changed substantially over the past half century, as the circumstances facing the country have altered and politicians of different hues have come and gone. At this event, Rowena Crawford will look at how things may evolve in future, focusing on the implications of increasing longevity and demographic change for public policy. Paul Johnson (Director, IFS) will then chair a conversation on the topic with Rowena and a panel of experts.
