The promotion of growth which provides rising living standards for all sections of society requires an active state whose role should include fostering a favourable climate for economic and investment activity and empowering and investing in people so that they are included. The development of institutions is central to this.
Nicholas Stern FBA, HM Treasury and the Government Economic Service, will give a public lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Tuesday 4 May.
He will speak on Inclusion, Changing Preferences and Public Policy, examining the relations of inclusion and empowerment to public policy and, in particular, the challenge of analysing and formulating public policy in the context of changing preferences.
Nicholas Stern FBA is second permanent secretary at HM Treasury and head of the Government Economic Service. He was chairman for LSE's Suntory and Toyota International Centres for Economics and Related Disciplines (STICERD) from 1987-93 and is currently a visiting professor at LSE.
Inclusion, Changing Preferences and Public Policy is on Tuesday 4 May at 6pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton St, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
