Vital Topics: The Transformative Power of Productivity

Productivity growth fuels economic progress and empowers businesses to thrive. However, for almost two decades productivity growth has been slowing. This is even more striking as we have access to technologies and innovations which could potentially improve the trajectory of growth.

In three short lectures, Honorary Professors Tera Allas, Catherine L Mann and Anthony Venables explore how productivity can fundamentally alter our path of economic progress and business success.

Tera Allas: Is AI the answer to our flagging productivity growth?
Catherine Mann: How high is the hurdle for UK business investment?
Tony Venables: Policy for transformative change.

This event will also be available to join online. You will be asked to select how you prefer to attend when registering.
