Public Finance, 8 May 2015

Senior Economist James Zuccollo wrote an article for PublicFinance where he argued that “the new Conservative government will need to deliver substantial improvements in public sector efficiency and productivity if it is to fulfil its ambitious spending promises.”

“The Coalition built its policy around the need to cut the deficit and right the public finances; the incoming Conservative government has declared its intention to “finish the job… in a balanced way.” A careful examination of the numbers suggests it might require a different approach from that of the past five years.”
