Raising the Bar: How household incomes can grow like they used to
Fatalism has overtaken Britain’s economic debate and the economic establishment are seemingly planning for stagnation. This Fabian project aimed to prove that the UK does not have to settle for the growth we have and that household incomes can grow again.
So how can we get family incomes to grow the way they used to?
That is the simple question the Fabian Society posed to the authors of this pamphlet. We wanted to understand what it might take to get back to the ‘old normal’ – the regular rising income that half a generation of workers have never seen.
