Spring Lecture 2020, Edinburgh - Vicky Pryce

Wednesday 25 March 2020 17:00 - 20:00

Spaces available

The Brexit Budget: What next for the UK economy? Please join us for our annual Spring Lecture presented by Vicky Pryce in Edinburgh. Vicky is Chief Economic Adviser and a board member at the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR).

In her lecture, Vicky will provide an in depth look at the first budget from Boris Johnson’s Government and dissect what this could mean for the direction of fiscal policy as the UK navigates its departure from the EU. Drawing upon her experience as Head of the UK Government’s Economic Service, Vicky will comment on the economic challenges facing government, and the impact that the Budget announcements could have on the economy in the short and long term. Whilst we don’t yet have the budget, it is likely the announcements will impact GDP, interest rates, employment rights and financial regulation. All of which will have consequences for the actuarial profession and users of actuarial services. Join us to ask your questions to an expert in economics and the mechanics of government.
