Abstract

It is fairly widely assumed that the outcome of the next election will pivot on the strength – or otherwise – of Britain’s economic recovery. James Plunkett from the Resolution Foundation considers the kind of recovery that we should be seeking, noting that as things stand there is little reason to believe that a return to growth would mean anything other than a return to wage stagnation and rising personal debt that we saw from 2003 to 2008.
