In this short discussion video, Andy Ford from PwC talks to Councillor Gerald Vernon-Jackson, Leader at Portsmouth City Council, Duncan O’Leary, Deputy Director at Demos and Nick C Jones, Director of our Public Sector Research Centre about the findings from our recent report ‘Good growth for cities’.
Our Good growth for cities report presents the findings of our index on the economic wellbeing of UK urban areas.
In April 2011, PwC, BritainThinks & Demos convened a group of 31 members of the public, drawn from a range of different backgrounds - to investigate what the people of Britain think is needed for future economic growth.
We have been working with general public, businesses, politicians and policy makers to develop an index for 'Good Growth’, with recommendations for government on how this can be achieved.
Norway, Germany and the Netherlands are the top countries to live and work in among major Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries, according to our new Good Growth index.
