Public Sector & Policy Speakers

The public sector in the UK and in many other countries isn’t the scale it was at the time of the 2008 financial crisis. Austerity policies and cutbacks have reduced its role somewhat. Nevertheless Government spending still represents 40% of the British economy and the proportion is higher in many other EU nations. Public sector speakers explain the politics, economics and possible futures of the public sector at a time when public spending may be about to become in many ways more generous.
