Lord David Willetts

Post-Pandemic Futures: What will be the economic impact for young people?

Lord David Willetts, Chair of the Resolution Foundation, wrote The Pinch in 2010, arguing that the economic prospects for young people were not nearly as good as for earlier generations. Updated last year, he discusses the ideas from his book with Professor Quintin McKellar, and what this might tell us about the economic prospects for young people today.
