Building forward: investing in a resilient post-Covid-19 recovery

A new report from the Bennett Institute for Public Policy, supported by LetterOne, finds that investing public funds - in people’s health and skills, and in social, natural, and physical capital - is the best way to bring about a more resilient and prosperous future, and to deliver the ‘levelling up’ agenda. Investments in this Inclusive Wealth will have a high return as countries look to ‘Build Forward’. Government spending in response to Covid-19 stands at well over £300 billion in the UK, and over £10 trillion globally. How this money is spent will shape the future of the economy and the environment for decades to come.
