Returning To Growth: Lessons From History

What can we learn from those experiences for today’s top policy priority of a return to growth?In this year’s RES Policy Lecture, Professor Nicholas Crafts will focus on both short-term stimulus measures and the supply-side factors that drive productivity growth over the longer term – and how we might achieve our immediate goal without damaging the UK’s economic prospects for the future.Nick Crafts is Professor of Economic History at the University of Warwick, Director of the ESRC Research Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy (CAGE) and a member of the RES Council and RES Executive Committee.
