Event description
"Who should pay for health and social care?" An IFS Public Talk by George Stoye (IFS) chaired by Anita Charlesworth (Health Foundation)

About this Event

As our population ages, government spending on health, long-term care and pensioner benefits is projected to rise from 14% of national income today to almost a quarter in the 2060s. How can we fund this growth? Is it fair to ask people to pay for their own social care? And where should this spending be focused?

This IFS Public Talk will be given by George Stoye, Senior Research Economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. The Chair is Anita Charlesworth, Director of Research and Economics at the Health Foundation. This talk is jointly organised with the University of Manchester and is part of the 2019 ESRC Festival of Social Science.

Date/time

Thursday, 7th November. Doors will be open from 5.00pm. The talk will take place from 5.15-6.30pm.

Please note, the University of Manchester will be filming the Manchester Talk-IFS Lecture. Any attendee who explicitly wishes not to be included in any broadcast film should approach the organisers.
