100 days to kickstart Britain: what should the new government's priorities be? | LSE Festival

The UK’s economy has waned in recent years - low growth and productivity have been coupled with rising inflation and poverty. In this event Richard Davies will be joined by Ricardo Hausmann, head of the Harvard Growth lab and a panel of senior journalists and policymakers to discuss how Britain’s economic model can be re-built to kickstart productivity and tackle the country’s challenges.

Ricardo Hausmann is the founder and Director of Harvard’s Growth Lab and the Rafik Hariri Professor of the Practice of International Political Economy at Harvard Kennedy School. Before joining Harvard University, he served as the first Chief Economist of the Inter-American Development Bank (1994-2000), Minister of Planning of Venezuela (1992-1993) and as a member of the Board of the Central Bank of Venezuela. He also served as Chair of the IMF-World Bank Development Committee.
