The coronavirus pandemic has brought new and severe pressures on the UK economy.
The challenge now facing Her Majesty’s Treasury will be how to balance the need for increasing revenues through taxes with stimulating much-needed economic growth.
This week, our host and IFS Director Paul Johnson speaks to Helen Miller, Deputy Director of the IFS and expert on tax policy, to discuss how the Treasury might raise revenues in the future and how our current tax system can be reformed.
Paul has been the Director of the IFS since 2011. He is also currently visiting professor in the Department of Economics at University College London.
Helen is Deputy Director of the IFS and Head of the Tax sector.
