Festival Of Economics: People, Places And Poverty (with Joseph Rowntree Foundation)

The panel will discuss how an individual person's characteristics (skills, experience, family background) and their social context combine to shape their economic opportunities. Is poverty best addressed by policies for people or policies for places? Why do 'poverty traps' have postcodes? And in the context of an economic downturn, is there any hope for progress on reducing poverty?

Chair: Julia Unwin, Chief Executive of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust.
Geoff Andrews, senior lecturer in politics, Open University and author of The Slow Food Story: Politics and Pleasure
Paul Gregg, Professor of Economic and Social Policy, and Director of the Centre for Analysis and Social Policy at Bath.
Lynsey Hanley, writer, author of Estates: An Intimate History
Paul Johnson, Director, Institute of Fiscal Studies.
