Events Today: Conversations and Kerslake

 

Reminders: Lunchtime, 1-2pm in HumSS 125 is the latest Economics Conversation, where today we’ll be discussing the upcoming Financial Settlement and Autumn Statement by the UK Government. These are both statements likely to be all the more interesting in light of recent events surrounding tax credits and the government’s fiscal charter.

Also, at 4pm today in Palmer 104 we have Lord Kerslake, former Head of the Civil Service, speaking at our Policy in Practice seminar. This is an event open to all, and a really great opportunity to hear more about how government works, particularly when it comes to the role economics plays (or doesn’t) in the policy-making process.
