As part of The Productivity Institute’s Brown Bag seminar series, Anna Stansbury, Assistant Professor in Work and Organization Studies at MIT Sloan, recently provided an overview of her paper “Tackling the UK’s regional economic inequality: Binding constraints and avenues for policy intervention”, which was co-authored with Dan Turner and Ed Balls.

The video of the seminar is now available to view on The Productivity Institute’s YouTube channel.
