Norfolk - 'Levelling up. What will it take?' Professor Diane Coyle
Tuesday 25 January 2022, 6.30pm to 8.00pm GMT
“Levelling up” is regarded by many as merely a political slogan, devoid of a definition or of meaningful plans. Others may be more optimistic but wish to know
- what the objectives are or could be
- what needs to be done to achieve these objectives
- what is realistically achievable in the medium term
- what the costs and benefits will be, and
- whether, and if so how, levelling up will affect our lives and change the country for the benefit of all.
Arguably no-one is better qualified to explore such questions, and give answers, than Diane Coyle. Not only is she a leading Cambridge University economics academic, she is also a Director of the Productivity Institute, a Fellow of the Office for National Statistics, and an expert adviser to the National Infrastructure Commission. She has been a member of the Competition Commission, the Migration Advisory Committee and the Natural Capital Committee and was awarded a CBE for her contribution to the public understanding of economics in the 2018 New Year Honours. Her latest book, Cogs and Monsters: What Economics Is, and What It Should Be, was published only last month. It explores the problems and opportunities facing economics today in helping policymakers solve many of the world’s deepest crises.
