Honey, I Shrank the State

Is there a Future for the Public Sector?

Katrine Marcal
Sat 14 November 2015,

With the new government committed to continuing to reduce the deficit without cutting taxes, the implication is that the size of the state in the UK is going to shrink to the lowest for many decades. Is that an ideological choice or just pragmatism given the state of the economy? What are the implications for the kind of public sector we will have?

With Katrine Marçal (columnist and author), Nick Crafts (University of Warwick), Stephen Davies (Institute of Economic Affairs), Rachel Gibson (University of Manchester) and Michael Keating (University of Aberdeen).
