This report is a contribution to the debate about UK economic policy. It has been produced jointly by the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) and the John Mills Institute for Prosperity (JMI).
The CSJ has a particular interest in improving the well-being and job prospects of the most disadvantaged. JMI’s primary focus is on getting the economy to grow faster and in a more balanced way. Both parties to this report, therefore, have a substantial overlapping common interest in policies to increase productivity, in making the levelling up agenda successful, in reviving manufacturing if this is the best way to do this, and in generating more prosperity to make everyone better off.
