IEA Economics Fellow Julian Jessop has been referenced in VoxEU article discussing the role of constant policy flip flops in Britain’s lost decade of economic growth.

The article said:

“In the May 2022 survey (Smith and Ilzetzki 2022), the majority of the panel indicated that UK-specific structural issues would lead to low growth in the coming decade.

“One such issue is the tendency of government policy after 2016 to ‘flip-flop’ from one idea to the next, according to Julian Jessop, a fellow at the free-market Institute of Economic Affairs. As a result, there has been a high degree of uncertainty, forcing companies to focus on staying afloat instead of building and expanding their businesses.”
