Professor Brian Nolan, Co-Director of the Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School, has authored a discussion paper ahead of a speech on inclusive economic growth by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

The speech, ‘The Good Economy’, will consider priorities for reconnecting wealth creation with social justice, and will be followed by a panel discussion with some of Britain’s leading thinkers on how a consensus for reform can be accelerated. The event is being hosted by the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Inclusive Growth, and takes place on 4th February.

Professor Nolan’s paper, ‘Inequality, Growth and Prosperity’ will help to inform the discussion. In his summary, Professor Nolan, who heads up INET Oxford’s Employment, Equity and Growth Programme, says that understanding “the complex interactions between inequality and growth may well hold the key to framing policies with the capacity to deliver long-term growth and widely-shared prosperity for a country like the UK”.
