This talk will begin by addressing the current state of the UK economy - what are the economic indicators telling us about how well the economy is faring and from these what can we insinuate about its immediate prospects. The talk will then consider some of the risks and opportunities that the UK faces today and how these might impact the economy of the future. Finally, it will discuss whether, considering these risks and opportunities, the current set of indicators used to assess the UK economy’s progress, remain the right metrics to measure its success.
