The cost of living crisis is dominating headlines, with the debate so far largely focusing on the burden felt by households, individuals and socio-economic groups.

Centre for Cities’ latest report, Out of pocket: the places at the sharp end of the UK’s cost of living crisis examines the crisis using a place-based approach for the very first time, to determine how the current squeeze on incomes is likely to be felt across the UK’s cities and largest towns.

For this episode of City Minutes, Senior Analyst Valentine Quinio and Analyst Guilherme Rodrigues join Chief Executive Andrew Carter to unpack the key findings of the report.

Together, they discuss, the drivers behind the geography of the cost of living crisis, whether the support provided by the Government is enough, and what short term and long term interventions can be put in place to ensure people and places are supported now and in the years to come.

Andrew Carter speaks to Chief Executive of the Royal Statistical Society and former government advisor Stian Westlake about his new book, Restarting the Future: How to Fix the Intangible Economy, which he co-authored alongside Jonathan Haskel.

This episode explores how there has been an incomplete transition from an economy based on physical capital to one based on intangible capital - such as ideas, brands, and knowledge. Westlake argues that this has left our economic institutions geared to an outmoded way of doing business, and that an institutional refresh is needed to drive growth and address inequalities.

Before Covid, the office-based workforce was key to the health of the high street. Now, despite the reopening of the economy, office workers in some of our strongest cities are yet to return in the numbers we saw pre-pandemic, raising questions over what’s next for our high streets.

For this episode of City Minutes, Senior Analyst Valentine Quinio joins Chief Executive Andrew Carter to set out the main findings of our latest briefing Homeworking and the high street.

They explore the state of play pre-pandemic, how successive lockdowns and shifts to homeworking have impacted high streets, and what - in the context of the ‘new normal’ of hybrid working -  is now needed for city centres to adapt and thrive.
