We welcome Andy Haldane, Chief Economist at the Bank of England to the last podcast of the current series. Andy spoke with us in his capacity as the chair of the Industrial Strategy Council– charged with holding the government to account over its delivery (or not) of the strategy’s objectives.
We made clear our surprise and concern at the apparent absence of any trade union input into the strategy when it was published. Can Andy say anything to reassure us? Will the Council be watch dog or a lap dog? And would increasing wages be a route to higher productivity? Becky also reflects about the quality of union democracy after a visit to the TCO conference in Stockholm.
Thanks as ever for your support: We’ll be back with series 5 in September. A Makes-You-Think production.
