Sharper Axes, Lower Taxes


  • 13/07/2011

On 13 July 2011 the IEA is launching a plan for comprehensive spending and tax reform – Sharper Axes, Lower Taxes: Big Steps to a Smaller State. The publication examines every aspect of government spending and offers a fundamental rethink of the role and scope of the state, providing solutions which would see increased economic growth and radically reduced spending levels.

Speaking at the panel discussion will be:

  • Mark Littlewood, Director General and Ralph Harris Fellow, Institute of Economic Affairs (chair)

  • Prof Philip Booth, Editorial and Programmes Director, Institute of Economic Affairs

  • Simon Heffer, journalist and author

  • Prof Patrick Minford, Professor of Applied Economics, Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University

  • Elizabeth Truss MP, Conservative Member of Parliament for South West Norfolk
