14 June, Ron Cooke Hub
How do you govern for shared prosperity? Is there an economic divide between North and South? What are the factors required to support business growth and how do we foster a culture of entrepreneurship? What needs to happen to increase business confidence? Who are the winners and who are the losers in an age of austerity? How does 'Great Britain PLC' compete against globalisation? How will the Eurozone crisis affect prospects for British business? These are just some of the questions that were debated by a range of business leaders, policy experts, economists and journalists in the first of a series of festival focus days at the 2013 York Festival of Ideas.
Delivered in partnership with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, and in association with York Professionals, 'Economy, entrepreneurship and equality' day presented an integrated exploration of the factors required to create a stronger economy for a more balanced society.
Julia Unwin, CEO of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, introduced the day.
