As our population ages, government spending on health, long-term care and pensioner benefits is projected to rise from 14% of national income today to almost a quarter in the 2060s. How can we fund this growth? Is it fair to ask people to pay for their own social care? And where should this spending be focused?
This IFS Public Talk will be given by George Stoye, Senior Research Economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Anita Charlesworth, Director of Research and Economics at the Health Foundation, will be on hand to put your questions to George. This talk is jointly organized with the University of Manchester and is part of the 2019 ESRC Festival of Social Science.
