Presentation

This presentation was given by Carl Emmerson at the 2019 General Election manifesto analysis briefing. You can watch the video below and download the slides here.

(Note: We have adjusted the figures on slides 11 and 12 on November 29th. The previous version understated headline borrowing in the Labour scenario and overstated headline borrowing in the Liberal Democrat scenario. The adjustment for public sector net debt is more modest and does not change the pattern of the different scenarios.)
