Podcast | Catching up or falling behind? Geographical inequalities in the UK

The COVID-19 crisis has brought to the fore increasing concerns about inequalities not only between different population groups – such as the gap between the rich and poor, young and old, and different ethnic groups – but also between people living in different places.

Even prior to the crisis though, there was a sense that the UK is not only a highly geographically unequal country, but also an increasingly geographically unequal one.

This podcast explores these geographical inequalities with David Phillips, Associate Director at IFS and an expert on devolved and local government finance.
