Video Creating a new economic map for the UK

by Yolanda Villafuerte _______19th September 2016

UK businesses wish to operate in a sustainably growing economy but today we are experiencing low growth as well as unprecedented economic conditions – record low interest rates, record high government debt in peace-time, a record current account deficit, and record asset prices relative to incomes. Government intervention has not worked and looks increasingly unsustainable. New economic thinking highlights how this problem can be understood through the flow of capital in the economy, which since the 1980s have increasingly flowed to those less likely to spend. Tomorrow’s Company is proposing a new economic map to analyse exactly what is limiting growth in our economy, and how business can help become part of the solution.
