The Productivity Exchange

Helping Government resolve the UK's productivity problem

Purpose of the Exchange

The Productivity Exchange enables leaders of professional firms and their clients to share ideas & issues online and face-to-face with each other, Government, professional bodies and business schools, and to respond to Government consultations.


Why productivity matters

“Productivity isn’t everything, but in the long run it’s almost everything,” according to Paul Krugman, Nobel Laureate in Economics. “A country’s ability to improve its standard of living over time depends almost entirely on its ability to raise its output per worker.”

UK prosperity is estimated to be 17% below trend due to the past decade of zero productivity growth. This has ongoing political, social and economic consequences.
