Over many years the UK households have become more and more reliant on debt to sustain themselves amidst a decline in real incomes. Financial common sense would suggest that individuals should start living within their means, but this reduction in spending and demand would likely bring the economy to a halt.

The UK’s 30 year economic experiment has privileged a supportive environment for enterprise but has led to regional and national decline and undermined the social settlement. Is there a new way of framing policy?

About our events
Big Ideas hold intelligent events at pubs in London. Anyone is welcome to turn up. Our conversations usually start with a question. Someone who has some relevant expertise gives a very brief, informal talk. After that a discussion develops in a free and unstructured manner. It's not a lecture, and it's not a debate; it's a pub argument, but unlike any you've had before.
