Philip Booth addresses the Treasury Select Committee

Philip Booth talks to the Treasury Select Committee

Philip Booth appeared in front of the Treasury Select Committee to discuss the Autumn Statement and answer questions about the future of the British economy.

Philip Booth said that in order to make economic growth easier, the government needs to introduce supply side reforms. Along with radical welfare reform, a strategy to reduce inequality poverty by removing government regulation that raises the cost of living is another way the government can stimulate growth, Philip Booth argued.

Economic growth will be possible if the Chancellor can reduce government spending to 2006 levels, as he intends, Philip Booth told the Committee.
