Paul Johnson – Institute For Fiscal Studies
As the TV and radio “go to man” for all issues related to the nation’s finances, Paul Johnson, director of the highly respected Institute for Fiscal Studies, makes a welcome return to his home town of Shoreham, giving an exclusive talk at Ropetackle.
The IFS has established an enviable reputation for its authoritative analysis and independence, cited regularly by all party leaders despite its readiness to question, and where necessary, criticise their pronouncements. Since the Brexit vote, the IFS has provided extensive analysis and warnings of the likely impact on the UK’s economy.
As well has being head of the IFS, Paul Johnson is a member of the statutory Committee on Climate Change and the Banking Standards Board, the remit of both being hugely important, not least at the present time. His wide ranging previous roles have included the Cabinet Office (advising on pensions and welfare reform), the Financial Service Authority (advising on financial regulation), and HM Treasury (director of public services).
