by Yolanda Villafuerte _______8th March 2017

Executive Summary

Written evidence submitted by Tomorrow’s Company in response to the Treasury Committee inquiry – Effectiveness and impact of post-2008 UK monetary policy.

We welcome the inquiry by the Treasury Select Committee. We agree that the efficacy of UK monetary policy in the aftermath of the financial crisis should be scrutinised, particularly at a time when conventional economics is struggling to provide all the answers. Our focus has been to better understand how money has been flowing through the UK financial system and through the activities of its companies, and how such flows have been affected by rising inequality and shifting business models.
