Event description
Join us for the latest in our series of City Horizons events on the rise of the intangible economy

About this Event

Britain, like many other major developed economies, now invests more in intangible assets, like design, branding, R&D, or software, than in tangible assets, like machinery, buildings, and computers. For all sorts of businesses, from tech firms and pharma companies to coffee shops and gyms, the ability to deploy assets that cannot be touched nor seen is increasingly the main source of long-term success.

They have also played a significant role in some of the big economic changes of the last decade – from economic inequality to stagnating productivity and the emergence of superstar cities.

Stian Westlake, co-author of ‘Capitalism without Capital’ with Jonathan Haskel, will join us to shed light on the rise of the intangible economy and what it means for the economic future of the country.
