Ahead of the government’s Autumn Statement on Wednesday December 5, the university asked six leading academics what they hoped would be included and what the impact might be for everything from business and manufacturing to the high street and personal wealth.
A number of the six contributors were from the Business School and discussed such topics as suggestions to boost British businesses, the state of the economy, possible changes to VAT and fuel duty and the possibility of new Council Tax bands. The academics featured are:
Andy Lymer, Professor of Accounting and Taxation and Deputy Head of Birmingham Business School
Isabelle Szmigin, Professor of Marketing
John Fender, Professor of Macroeconomics, Department of Economics
John Bryson, Professor of Enterprise and Competitiveness
