How much should we spend on our public services? And what are we prepared to pay for through taxes?
Robert Chote, director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, will set out forthcoming Budget challenges facing the Chancellor (whoever he or she may be). This presentation will be followed by a panel debate between three leading political thinkers:
- Nick Pearce, Director, Institute for Public Policy Research;
- Anthony Browne, Director-Designate, Policy Exchange;
- Alasdair Murray, Director, CentreForum
Questions and contributions will be welcomed from the floor.
This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2007.
