The future of the UK's lacklustre economy is the question dominating every business leader's thoughts. We bring two economists together to discuss its 2023 performance against expectations, the outlook for this year, and the macro factors which could derail any hopes for growth or even fertilise the green shoots of economic recovery.

We debate:

  • Factors continuing to contribute to economic stagnation
  • The impact on consumers and UK retail
  • The arguments for and against growth prospects in 2024
