Chief Executive Andrew Carter is joined by Henry Overman, Professor of Economic Geography at the London School of Economics, Research Director at the Centre for Economic Performance and Director of the What Works Centre for Local Economic Growth, which marks its tenth anniversary this year. They discuss how to measure the scale of the underperformance of cities in the UK and search for evidence that could point us towards the right solutions.
The discussion follows on from Henry’s recent post for the LSE’s Politics and Policy blog: Why the government’s levelling-up plans need a reality check.
