The 2010 Coalition government and the current Conservative government have pursued policies to reduce the current account deficit, cut taxation and shrink the size of the state. So far these policies have been successful in restoring a measure of growth but have not yet rebalanced the economy and increased productivity, and they have not stimulated trade with the high growth emerging markets. Such problems can be attributed to difficult external conditions or to policy choices. Come and hear Seema Malhotra MP, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury give her views on how public expenditure for services and investment could play a key role in growing the economy and contributing to economic growth and government revenues.
