Falling productivity and slowing growth: do our post-2008 problems have anything to do with universities? - 25 March 2019

Please note that this event has passed.

The financial crash of 2008 was a break-point, politically and economically. In the UK, it ushered in a period of declining productivity growth: more generally, it came when productivity was stuttering across the developed economies. The favoured remedy of governments everywhere had been more and more higher education. Was this wrong? Or have universities ‘failed’ in some way? Professor Wolf will discuss the international consensus on education and growth, and why this is now faltering, followed by a panel discussion with experts on economic growth.
