According to a new report by the Centre for Cities, Britain has been experiencing stagnation for over a decade. The national economy is being limited by an over-centralised, inefficient and under-resourced system of local government.
Ultimately, improving the nation’s economic performance and overcoming this stagnation will require institutional reforms of local economic governance. Cities, as places of innovative and high-skilled activity, will be of particular importance in delivering such positive economic change.
This report was commissioned by the Resolution Foundation from Centre for Cities as part of the Economy 2030 Inquiry.
