The CapX Podcast: A Spring in his step?


It’s a very topical podcast this week as we run the rule over Rishi Sunak’s much-anticipated Spring Statement.

With war in Ukraine and a Covid crisis in China, combined with already soaring inflation here in the UK, the Chancellor had a hugely unenviable task on Wednesday afternoon – so how did he do? Was the statement up to the mark of dealing with a generational cost of living crisis, and is Sunak really the Nigel Lawson tax-cutter he would have Tory MPs believe?

To chew over those question the CapX team welcomed James Heywood, the Head of Welfare and Opportunity at our parent organisation, the Centre for Policy Studies.
