Event details

The Distinguished Lecture series in collaboration with ESRC Centre for Population Change welcomed Lord Willetts, Executive Chair of the Resolution Foundation and former Minister for Universities and Science.

Lecture Synopsis

“The Pinch, published in 2010 argued that the post War Baby Boomers had achieved incomes and wealth which it was going to be hard for the younger generation to enjoy. Since his book came out David Willetts has served as universities minister introducing controversial changes to university funding – are they in the interests of the younger generation or not? He has also chaired the Resolution Foundation’s Intergenerational Commission and will set out their policy proposals to offer a fair deal to the younger generation.”
