On 13 July 2011 the IEA is launching a plan for comprehensive spending and tax reform – Sharper Axes, Lower Taxes: Big Steps to a Smaller State. The publication examines every aspect of government spending and offers a fundamental rethink of the role and scope of the state, providing solutions which would see increased economic growth and radically reduced spending levels.
Speaking at the panel discussion will be:
- Prof Philip Booth, Editorial and Programmes Director, Institute of Economic Affairs
- Simon Heffer, journalist and author
- Mark Littlewood, Director General and Ralph Harris Fellow, Institute of Economic Affairs
