The UK's decisive decade
The launch report for The Economy 2030 Inquiry
ABOUT THE INQUIRY
The UK is on the brink of a decade of huge economic change – from the Covid-19 recovery, to exiting the EU and transitioning towards a Net Zero future. The Economy 2030 Inquiry will examine this decisive decade for Britain, and set out a plan for how we can successfully navigate it.

On Tuesday May 18th, we held an interactive webinar to launch The Economy 2030 Inquiry. During the event, Inquiry Commissioners Clive Cowdery, Minouche Shafik, Carolyn Fairbairn and Dani Rodrik discussed the economic change that the UK is about to live through, and what we can learn from our own history and the experiences of other countries. The event was chaired by the Resolution Foundation’s Torsten Bell.
A decisive decade for British business
In conversation with Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng
Having suffered the biggest economic contraction in 300 years, the UK economy is back on the road to recovery. But the Covid recovery is just one of many huge economic shifts confronting British businesses over the next decade as the country embarks on a new future outside the EU, faces an urgent transition towards a low-carbon economy, and grapples with rapid technological and population changes.
