The government must pursue key supply-side reforms

Philip Booth appears on Newsnight

Philip Booth appeared on Newnsight to discuss the UK's dismal growth figures. The government is not implementing the policies needed for the private sector to offset costs of cuts to public spending.

He argued that poor growth is policy induced, a result of the refusal to rapidly cut size of public sector as well as a refusal to pursue key supply-side reforms. He discussed the need for key liberalisations of the labour market, energy markets and planning.
