Description

The Institute for Public Policy Research is delighted to invite you to a drinks reception at the Labour Party Conference hosted by the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice.

The UK economy is broken. It no longer provides rising living standards for the majority. Young people face an increasingly insecure future. The gap between rich and poor areas is widening. Meanwhile the rise of giant digital companies, the advance of automation, and catastrophic environmental degradation challenge the very foundations of our economic model.

A two year project by IPPR - the Commission on Economic Justice - analysed these profound challenges and set out a bold vision for change. Its radical policy agenda for the 2020s includes new missions to drive productivity and innovation, an overhaul of our financial system, and reforms to improve wages, job quality and the redistribution of wealth.

Read the final report from the Commission; 'Prosperity and Justice: A Plan for the New Economy' here.

Speakers addressing the reception:

  • Rt Hon John McDonnell MP, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer
  • Frances O'Grady, General Secretary, Trades Union Congress (TUC)

  • Tom Kibasi, Director, IPPR

The reception will take place on Monday 24th September, 19.30 – 20.30 in Suite 1 in Jurys Inn Liverpool.

Please register for your place.
