IPPR Report on Economic Justice

Dear Associates,
Herewith a link to the Institute of Public Policy Research’s interim report, and responses received so far. Will you be making a response generally and or to Welby? And would you have guidance on the approach that I and/or other CCMJ associates should make in as wide a response as we can muster. There is still until September 21st an opportunity to submit material to the last study sector, that is on “Wealth and Ownership in the UK” – and please note that this is an interim report – the final report is due in 2018 so there is time to consider and respond.  Meanwhile we have been invited to an open meeting next Wednesday 13th Sept 2017 to discuss the interim report: full details below:
Yours, Peter.

Wednesday 13th September 2017: 6-7.30pm: Time for change: a new vision of hope for the economy – discussion of the interim report of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice. The economy belongs to us all, but is not working for everyone. Half of all households have seen no meaningful improvement in their incomes for more than a decade. The UK economy suffers from significant structural weaknesses – low and declining investment, low productivity, a large balance of trade deficit and major fiscal and carbon gaps. These problems suggest that the foundations of our economy need to be rethought. Join us to discuss the Interim Report of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice, which will set out a new economic vision for how we can generate sustainable growth and broadly-shared prosperity across the UK. Speakers will include Michael Jacobs, director of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice, Professor Mariana Mazzucato, who holds the Chair in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value and is Director of the Institute for Innovation & Public Purpose (UCL), and Lord Skidelsky, crossbench peer and Emeritus Professor of Political Economy at Warwick University.
