UK Election 2024: A Productivity Plan

UK Election 2024 – a productivity plan. Productivity Puzzles Season 3, Episode 4 was released on Thursday, 27 June 2024

 The election manifestos published in the second week of June 2024 sparsely recognise the importance of productivity. This is perhaps because it’s not the most glamorous topic for voters to be excited about being canvassed on their doorstep. But for any incoming government, productivity will need to run through the core of the policy agenda in the coming years.

Host Professor Bart van Ark is joined by:

  • Sir Anton Muscatelli, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Glasgow.
  • Dame Diane Coyle, Co-Director of the Bennett Institute for Public Policy at the University of Cambridge, and Co-Director of The Productivity Institute.
  • Andy Westwood, Policy Director at The Productivity Institute and Professor of Government Practice at The University of Manchester.
