On the latest ICAEW Insights podcast, we discuss the economic challenges facing new Prime Minister Liz Truss, and the policy commitments made during the summer’s campaign trail.

The Prime Minister has a sizeable in-tray to tackle. Stalling growth and rising inflation have led to warnings of economic stagnation for the UK. The energy crisis and industrial action this coming winter complicate matters, too.

It leaves little wiggle room for policymaking at Number 10, but the Prime Minister has promised to enact tax cuts and hinted at sweeping regulatory reforms.

Host Philippa Lamb discusses what the first 100 days of Liz Truss’s leadership may look like with ICAEW experts Suren Thiru, Iain Wright and Richard Jones.
