IEA Research discussed in The Independent

New IEA Research advocating deregulation as the solution to the cost of living crisis has been discussed in The Independent.

Referencing the paper’s findings, the article reads:

“The next prime minister should cut red tape for housing, childcare and energy to help counter spiralling costs for households, the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) has said.”

“In a new report, the free-market think tank argues that cash handouts “act as mere sticking plasters” and drive up inflation.”

“Dr Kristian Niemietz, head of political economy at the IEA, said: “In a number of important sectors, Government policy is systematically driving up the cost of living for no good reason, and has been doing so for a long time”.”
