Financial capability can deliver social mobility

Recession could be a new and extensive block on social mobility, cutting into the investment margin for people to develop their own skills. At a seminar organised by the ICAEW and the independent think tank Reform, Chris Grayling MP, Conservative Shadow Secretary for Work and Pensions, outlined the scale of the challenge.

This paper looks at the difference that financial capability can make to raising social mobility and the importance of this at a time of economic crisis.
