About ResPublica

Our research and policy output is always guided by our three founding principles; society, prosperity and virtue. This year, against a backdrop of significant economic change and a renewed focus on social reform, we will be focusing these efforts on two priorities.

The British economy does not produce the widened prosperity or opportunity we need.

Productivity is wildly unequal and uneven in its distribution – cutting off communities outside of London from access to high quality jobs and to real social mobility; investment is low and too short-term – the UK invests a smaller percentage of its GDP in R&D than our competitors, holding us back in innovation and global trade; infrastructure is poorly planned and under-delivered – incurring a stasis for regions and communities that leaves them unable to attract new investment or promote job creation; and too much is owned by too few, stifling competition, creativity and diversity in our markets
