Abstract

This proposal sets out a major new programme of research that will lead to significant scientific progress and policy impact. Building on the expertise developed at the Centre and at IFS, we will use the developments in econometric techniques and data availability, including linked survey and administrative data, to push our research agenda in exciting new directions. The focus of the work will be on:
- Consumers and markets. We will use insights from behavioural economics and robust methods to understand within-household behaviour and we will explore the relationships between government policy, firm behaviour and outcomes for consumers. This work has the potential to transform our understanding of the effects of policy interventions that either change the relative prices of the goods consumers buy (e.g. taxes on alcohol, green levies, sugar taxes) or try to change consumers' preferences (e.g. through information campaigns or restrictions on advertising).
- Inequality, risk and insurance. Understanding the determinants of inequality is central to our agenda. We will focus on understanding inequality across the life cycle and across and within generations. We will explore the role of housing, of insurance and of market and non-market mechanisms in managing risk and uncertainty. The availability of new administrative data linked to existing surveys will allow us to examine the dynamics of inequality and the impact of alternative policies. In particular, we will focus on the role of wealth and bequests in generating within-cohort inequality among the younger generations and we will investigate how uncertainty is resolved over the life cycle and how this affects the degree of insurance provided by taxes and benefits at different ages.
- Public finances and taxation. Focusing on high earners and multinational companies, we will use newly-available data to throw new light on risks to the public finances in the UK from these vital but increasingly risky sources of revenue. We will also develop a programme of work that focuses on the particular issues facing tax design in middle-income countries.
- Evolution of human capital over the life cycle. We aim to make major strides in understanding the process of formation of human capital from the early years to young adulthood, how human capital is rewarded in the labour market, how it is linked to labour supply and productivity, and how the evolution of health and well-being interacts with labour supply and other outcomes in later years.
These issues are intricately related and we envisage a joined-up programme of work that will provide new answers to some of the most important questions currently facing policymakers. How do people make decisions over savings, nutrition, education and labour supply and how can government influence those decisions? What is driving increased levels of income inequality and how might interventions in education and through the tax and welfare system ameliorate them, and at what cost? How should governments respond to the pressures on corporate and individual tax revenues created by increasing globalisation? What drives decisions over pension savings, health behaviours and retirement decisions and how should governments design policy in the face of an ageing population?
In answering these questions, we will make use of the unique expertise and data resources brought together at the Centre. Crucially, our intention is also to take a consistent approach in which we will model the determinants of individual decisions over the life course and the interactions between economic actors; we will model behavioural 'biases' and market frictions; we will use a combination of available data, randomised controlled trials and structural modelling to understand not just the effect of policies but also what drives that effect and hence what might be the effect of other policies; and we will develop new data and measurement tools.

Planned Impact

Our research programme will achieve impact across a range of users.

Policymakers
We will work proactively to influence policy. Centre researchers will meet with ministers, senior civil servants and policymakers. To provide three examples:
-Our work on early years and education will help policymakers in the UK and some middle-income countries to understand the mechanisms that lead to, or block, social mobility. We will focus on the efficacy of particular policies, including the role of information, resources and teacher incentives. Building on our close working relationships with senior civil servants, ministers and their shadows, we expect this to directly influence policymaking in Whitehall. We also intend to work with local authorities in England and liaise with NGOs (e.g. Sutton Trust) and the Social Mobility Commission. We have secured considerable buy-in for this agenda from governments in Chile, Colombia, India and Peru.
-We are in conversation with HMT regarding its interest in our proposed work on the dynamics of labour supply and earnings. This work has the potential to change the way policymakers think about the effects of tax and welfare policy, moving beyond immediate distributional and incentive effects.
-Our work on retirement and later life will inform policy on pensions, pension age, disability benefits and social care. We anticipate particular impact from looking at how knowledge and expectations drive retirement decisions, as these are issues over which governments can have real influence. As well as working with DWP and HMT, we will build on our wide network of contacts in the pensions industry for whom an understanding of financial and retirement decision-making is crucial.

In addition, work on housing, wealth and insurance will engage the Bank of England, the finance industry and housing bodies; work on corporate tax and productivity is crucial to government and the business community; and work from across the whole Centre agenda, in conjunction with its implications for public finances in the medium and long term, is highly relevant for the OBR.

Academic community
Our research will have a direct scientific impact through journal publications, high-profile conference presentations and special sessions. It will inform new developments in data measurement and data linkage and generate substantial spillovers into other research. Domestically, we will work closely with ESRC investments at Essex (Understanding Society), UCL (Cohort Studies and CLOSER) and LSE (CEP) as well as with those analysing linked datasets (in research institutions and in government) in order to maximise the value of these synergies. Internationally, we will work with the NIA-funded ageing studies in the US, UK, Europe, China, India, Brazil, Chile, Japan and many other countries on various data collection initiatives. We will collaborate with international institutions (e.g. IADB and the World Bank) so that the lessons learned in our data initiatives are used in a wide range of contexts.

A second aspect of academic impact will be through training and network activities. The Centre attracts and trains talented researchers and offers a stimulating working environment by maintaining an impressive global network of research fellows, associates and visitors. We disseminate and promote findings through our networks and through collaborations with other ESRC investments (e.g. CEP and MISOC) and research groups at UCL (Epidemiology and Public Health), Manchester (Health Economics and Social Statistics) and Oxford (Economics).

Media and public
We will use the media to inform the public, working intensively with journalists in print and broadcast media to deliver the key messages of our research. We will engage with political, business, education, social affairs and economics correspondents. Our website, public lectures and targeted events engage with students and the wider community, promoting the outcomes of our research.
 
Description The objective of CPP is to produce world-class cross-cutting academic research that addresses current policy-relevant issues and challenges. Our research agenda focuses on understanding individual and firm behaviour and the implications of this for the best ways to design policy interventions across a broad range of areas including taxation, labour markets, welfare, pensions and, more recently, education, productivity, public finances, health and development.

At the heart of the Centre's track record is the history of significant research contributions, mainly to the literatures in applied microeconomics, microeconometrics, labour economics and public economics. In terms of globally excellent research, research funded by CPP since 1991 has led to over 360 papers in world-leading economics journals, with over 70 in 'top-5' economics journals. In the period under review, the research agenda at the Centre has broadened and researchers have increasingly developed genuine interdisciplinary collaborations, meaning that we are also generating important research contributions that are published in the top journals of other disciplines such as health, development and demography.

Below we outline examples of major achievements, organised into six broad and related areas of our research agenda; see https://www.ifs.org.uk/research_areas for further details.

*Inequality, poverty and living standards*
Analysing how the distribution of income, consumption and wealth shapes inequality, poverty and living standards is a central area of research at the Centre, providing key insights into the determinants and dynamics of inequality. One significant contribution has been to study how permanent changes in income (e.g. changes in the return to certain skills caused by technical progress) or more short-lived events (e.g. temporary layoffs) are eventually reflected in changes in consumption inequality. Using microdata on consumption, income and earnings, we studied mechanisms such as social insurance, savings and family labour supply, as well as market interactions that can mitigate the consumption response to these unexpected events.

We have taken this research forward to develop the idea of 'partial insurance' and interpreted in terms of specific market frictions that prevent complete insurance. This work has been widely cited and spawned a new literature examining the dynamics of inequality, linking inequality in the labour market to consumption inequality, drawing out the importance of labour supply, credit and insurance markets and the tax and welfare system. Building on this work, recent research at the Centre has published influential results, including the role of employment risk, the recent history of consumption inequality and family labour supply. These results rest on understanding panel data dynamics, which has been a world-leading field of research at the Centre since its early days through to the present, and on the role played by various types of markets and their frictions.

This research provided the backbone to our public policy work on inequality and poverty, including our annual audit of poverty in the UK, which is widely quoted in the media and policy documents. We regularly chart and explain inequality in wages, earnings, incomes and consumption for the UK and other countries, and how this inequality will be affected by policy reforms; we examine the impact in both "snapshots" and also over a longer period of time. We examine the effectiveness of a wide range of policies aimed at reducing poverty - including taxes and benefits, and other types of policy interventions. This work has had a major impact in the policy debate on children and inequality, the role of lone parents, pensions, education, and inequality and the role of tax and welfare reform.

A long-standing body of Centre research has studied poverty alleviation in developing countries, including interventions such as conditional cash transfer programmes related to health or education, and in-kind transfers designed to help poor households. Our analysis of poverty and living standards in developing countries has had important policy impact, e.g. the evidence generated on the long-run impacts of asset transfers to ultra-poor households is being used outside of academia by research partners, such as BRAC (an NGO based in Bangladesh), as well as by other organisations that implement, support and advocate for the asset transfers approach around the globe.

*Retirement and savings*
As the populations of many countries age, it is more important than ever that the pension system enables and encourages people to provide for their own retirement, while also helping those who reach retirement without enough wealth to maintain an acceptable standard of living. These objectives frequently - and perhaps inherently - conflict. Our research has studied individual and employer behaviour, and the impact of various actual and proposed government reforms.

To facilitate this research, the Centre has been at the forefront of driving forward new data collection on ageing, working with colleagues in epidemiology and sociology to found the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, which is the leading panel data source for ageing research in the UK. Amongst other contributions, this has led to innovative and highly influential international comparative research, finding, for example, that individuals in England near retirement age are in considerably better health than their American counterparts.
Pensions provide insurance against adverse health, survival and earnings events and help the elderly maintain an acceptable standard of living. However, state pension provision potentially distorts saving and labour supply decisions, creating important trade-offs for policymakers considering pension design. Research at the Centre has contributed to this debate, quantifying these trade-offs and measuring the well-being of the elderly. Early research at the Centre measured the ways in which government pensions can discourage employment. Our research has used pension reforms in both the UK and other countries to estimate precisely the extent to which government pensions do crowd out private pensions, finding that the crowd-out is less than complete. Using dynamic structural models that account explicitly for various risks, our recent research finds that minimum benefits for retirees provide valuable insurance and should be larger than at present. Recent research at the Centre has also shown that pension design problems are particularly important in middle-income countries, where those who work in the informal sector are not covered by the pension system.

We have also carried out multiple studies of specific aspects of UK pension reform, and of the interactions between various public programmes and private pension saving; these include looking at the impact of the recent rise in the female state pension age on the employment rates of women in their 60s, the employment rates of their husbands, their household incomes, measures of deprivation and their health. The UK has also embarked on the first nationwide roll-out of automatic enrolment and centre researchers have examined its impact on saving in workplace pensions. These studies have been key in informing policy and media debate over a period of considerable institutional change. We assessed the adequacy of retirement savings by looking at consumption changes on retirement and showed that much of the fall in spending on retirement can be explained by lower work-related spending. More generally, our programme of work on the distribution of wealth and its implications for future retirement incomes provided key evidence cited recently in the DWP Framework for the Analysis of Future Pension Incomes.

*Tax and benefit reform*
Work on the impact and reform of taxation and welfare benefits has been at the heart of the Centre's research since its inception. The increased adoption of means-tested benefits and tax credits in the UK and elsewhere has refocused employment policy on creating incentives for lower-skilled individuals to gain and retain employment. A key innovation at the Centre was to use detailed microdata and develop new microeconometric techniques with simulation methods to construct policy simulation models and to incorporate behavioural responses. This work has been hugely influential in the academic world and in the policy debate. Underpinning this research was the infrastructure development at the Centre of the detailed series of microdata on families' circumstances and the tax and benefit microsimulation model TAXBEN.

Particularly important has been research on labour supply responses, especially given reforms in the UK to in-work benefits aimed at incentivising individuals in low-income families into work and supporting earnings in work. This microeconometric research on household behaviour set the agenda for academic research worldwide. Early work at the Centre on taxation and labour supply was at the core of this research. In recent work we have extended this research to investigate differences in labour supply responses at the extensive and intensive margins. Our research also developed new methods allowing for unobserved heterogeneity across families, for fixed costs of work and for stigma costs in the take-up of tax credits and welfare benefits. Labour supply decisions within the family have become a growing part of our research, and are of particular relevance given the importance of reforms to in-work benefits and childcare subsidies. This work was essential to the impact analysis of policy proposals, including our analysis of tax credit reforms and, more recently, universal credit.

Our research on taxation has fundamentally changed the public debate about tax policy and has had direct consequences for tax legislation on personal taxation, taxation of savings, corporations and property. These academic papers provided the key scientific evidence for the tax reform proposals in the influential Mirrlees Review of Tax Reform, established by the ESRC Centre, and published open-access in two highly accessible and well-read volumes. The research had substantive impact on policy reform, ranging from public debate on the fundamental principles of taxation to an effect on legislation. For example, the FT ran a glowing lead editorial on the Review and, among many other key cites in the public policy arena, US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers wrote 'Theory and practice rarely are brought together effectively.... It should be read by anyone who cares about the future of taxation.' The proposals formed the founding evidence for the Treasury Select Committee report Principles of Tax Policy and were a key input in the Office of Tax Simplification's Tax Reliefs Review (both 2011), and were directly cited by the Budget Red Book to justify not taxing the saving income of many individuals. CPP research on tax and benefit reform continues to influence policy.

*Human capital, education and skills*
Developing human capital is critical for improving growth and productivity, and reducing inequality and poverty, in developed and developing countries. An important strand of our research focuses on the process of human capital formation as a whole, recognising that the effectiveness of certain types of interventions to foster it might depend crucially on what happens in early life. We have placed particular emphasis on the mechanisms of human capital development in the early years of life and how different traits, such as cognitive and socio-emotional skills, interact with parental inputs and other environmental factors over the life cycle. Parental investment is important and interacts crucially with other investments over the life cycle, from early childcare and pre-school education, through to primary and secondary schooling, higher education and adult learning. We have looked specifically at the drivers of parental behaviour, which range from financial resources to attitudes and beliefs. We have studied the impact of parenting interventions in developing countries, showing that parental behaviour is a crucial driver of the intergenerational transmission of skills and economic capabilities. Using the detailed longitudinal data in the UK cohort studies, we have established the pattern of returns to educational investments while allowing for differences in family background and ability measures. Our research has uncovered a strong complementarity in the returns to formal education when young and to on-the-job human capital investment.

Another important strand of our research on human capital has looked at the role of school quality. One study has used data from the British National Child Development Study to investigate the effect of pupil-teacher ratios and type of school on educational attainment. In related work, Centre researchers have used novel measures of teacher quality, and data from a field experiment in Ecuador, to identify the role played by the former in early child development. We have also looked at the impact of training programmes for young unemployed people and produced one of the first studies of the long-run (10-year) impact of one such programme.

Our work in this area has received considerable attention from policymakers in the UK and around the world. Our UK research provides policymakers and the public with a much longer and more comprehensive picture of how spending per student has been evolving across different stages of education than has previously been available. At the international level, we have interacted with World Bank and IADB officials and influenced the design of early childhood development policies in countries such as Colombia, Peru and, more recently, Ghana and India.

*Consumer behaviour *
Research at CPP has made a major contribution to the understanding of the choices consumers make over which goods and services to purchase, the sensitivity of their decisions to changes in taxes and prices, the interdependence of decisions made by firms and those made by consumers, and the implications of all of these factors for government policy and for the wider economy.

Our research has shown the importance of non-linearities in consumer demand analysis and has built on our earlier research which developed the easy-to-implement yet integrable demand system - the Quadratic Almost Ideal system. Our research considers the key importance of heterogeneity between rich and poor consumers, which we have used to examine the distributional impact of indirect taxes. By emphasising that models could be made more flexible, as well as being able to accommodate preference heterogeneity, whilst still remaining coherent with economic theory, recent CPP research also jump-started major research in three separate strands of empirical microeconometrics: non- and semi-parametric structural models; endogeneity in structural models; and methods for large demand systems. Research at the Centre on non-parametric revealed preference has created a new body of work using microdata-based models to uncover new aspects of consumer behaviour.

Our research has explored what drives large international differences in food purchasing and caloric intake, showing that interaction between prices, incomes and differences in food preferences is needed to explain cross-country differences. This research has also considered the interrelation between consumers and firms. The impact of policies that seek to influence consumer choice through advertising or altering prices has been analysed in studies of the introduction of a nutrient tax, and of how placing restrictions on advertising affects prices, purchases and hence diet quality and welfare.

*Productivity and innovation*
Long-term increases in living standards and well-being depend on sustained growth in productivity. This in turn depends on investment, innovation and the allocation of resources. Centre research has made important contributions to the understanding of how product market competition, firm structure, spillovers and agglomeration of activities interact with investment to drive innovation and productivity.

Economists have long been interested in the relationship between competition and innovation. Early empirical work suggested that innovation increased with competition. However, economic theory was largely at odds with this. To reconcile these conflicting views, research at the Centre brought together leading economics theorists with state-of-the-art econometric modelling to re-examine this relationship and provided new insights on the relationship between innovation, competition and growth.

In an increasingly global world, it matters not only how much firms are investing and what they are investing in, but also where they are investing. The Centre has been the home to much of the seminal work on how taxes affect firm location choices. This has included important work on how to measure tax incentives and how to model firm location choices. Our recent work has built on this to estimate how the location of intellectual property responds to corporate taxation.

The empirical findings and associated expertise at the Centre have directly informed policy debates. For example, IFS work has been central to discussions about the introduction of an R&D tax credit, and our analysis was used in debates about the introduction of Patent Boxes in the UK and across Europe and went on to affect their subsequent redesign. Our research has also contributed to industrial policy and a better understanding of the UK's current productivity puzzle.
Exploitation Route Our findings have direct relevance to policy. They are used and will be used by policymakers and parliamentarians, as well as other practitioners and the media to understand the implications of policy proposals. More details are given in the narrative impact section.

Description The core objective of CPP is to carry out internationally leading research in microeconomic policy analysis, to bring the most high-quality and rigorous insights generated by this research to bear on the formation of public policy, and to inform and improve the quality of public debate. CPP has contributed fundamentally in the areas of the ESRC's strategic research relating to economic policy, inequality, growth and development, with specific contributions in the areas of taxation, the labour market, human capital and education, the design and operation of the welfare state, consumption and saving dynamics, pensions and retirement saving, productivity and health. One of the unique strengths of the Centre is its location within the Institute for Fiscal Studies. IFS is unique, not just in the UK but internationally, in the way it combines frontier microeconomic research with an active and politically independent agenda of engagement with economic policymaking. It is arguably the best empirical microeconometrics laboratory in the world, and many others are now seeking to emulate the way it operates. IFS and CPP are co-dependent. Neither could be successful without the other. IFS as a whole seeks to carry out empirical research of the highest quality and relevance, and to impact on policy and the public debate. The ESRC Centre is fundamental to the success of IFS, since it provides the stable funding that facilitates ground-breaking independent research in economics and econometrics as well as long-term investments in developing a unique range of models and data sets. Undoubtedly a key element of the Centre's long-term strategic success has been the role it has played in the development and success of IFS itself. IFS is also fundamental to the success of the Centre. It provides an environment that involves the very brightest and best economics graduates and, supported by the Centre, gives them an unparalleled training in applied research. It also provides phenomenal reach into the media and into government. We use this reach to maximise the impact of Centre-funded research. *International collaboration and policy influence* We have very extensive international collaborations in both the academic and policy domains. In addition to the many international research collaborations, Centre researchers have been a core part of the NBER's International Social Security programme, Economics of Aging programme and International Savings Comparisons projects. Many CPP researchers are involved in the NBER networks and summer institutes. Centre co-directors have been presidents of many international societies (see 'Broader Leadership and Impact'). Centre researchers have strong networks and frequent interactions with both academics and policymakers in the US, Europe, India, China, Latin America and many developing countries. We are frequently consulted by government officials from other countries; in the last 12 months alone, this has included delegations from Sweden, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Finland, Australia, Japan, Korea, Ghana and Ethiopia and from the European Commission, the IMF and the OECD. *Capacity building* We have had, and continue to have, huge success in capacity building by developing new generations of economists with rigorous training and direct experience of academic microeconometric research. Many CPP staff (most of whom had no PhD or research experience when they arrived) have gone on to have very successful academic careers. Alumni include full professors at Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, LSE, Stanford, Yale, MIT and many other top university departments. Others have entered the public service, the media and the private sector. Full details are given in 'Broader Leadership and Impact', but CPP-trained researchers and alumni have occupied and/or now occupy some of the most senior economist positions in UK government departments such as HMT, DfE and DH, and also at the OECD, the BBC, Financial Times, The Economist and the Institute for Government. Our staff have been seconded to the BoE, DWP, HMRC and HMT and we have hosted secondees from HMT, DCLG and HMRC. This capacity building also extends to other major ESRC investments: CPP-trained researchers are currently the Principal Investigators of the NCDS 1958 Cohort Study and the Millennium Cohort Study and Director of MISOC at Essex. *Policy impact* The way in which IFS is connected to both media and policymaking communities in the UK has allowed us to develop an extremely strong record of high-level impact from our research agenda. This has been recognised in many ways, e.g. Richard Blundell receiving a Knighthood and Rachel Griffith receiving a CBE for their contributions to economic policy. Our networks of policymakers are both wide and deep and we talk frequently to officials in HMT, HMRC, OBR, ONS, DWP, DH, DfE, Cabinet Office, BEIS, DfID, DIT and DCLG. We work closely with local government and its representative organisations such as the LGA and CIPFA and with devolved administrations in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast. Our work with international policymakers includes international finance institutions (e.g. the World Bank), government officials and NGO staff. We are frequently invited to discuss policy development in areas of Centre research, and Centre researchers sit on numerous advisory boards. These interactions lead to continued two-way feedback between researchers and policymakers that allow us to (a) bring the messages and findings of our specific research studies to the attention of policymakers, (b) deliver more general research-based messages and advice founded on state-of-the-art evidence and knowledge, (c) understand the evolving needs of policymakers and so inform the design of our research agenda and (d) establish a policy debate in both government and the media based on rigorous research evidence. Taken together, this approach has created an impact that is far broader than simply the sum of the specific impacts of the individual research studies undertaken at the Centre. To give a sense of this reach into the wider policymaking debate, IFS was mentioned 220 times in Parliament in 2016, 201 times in 2017 and 189 times in 2018. Over the past year, CPP researchers have given evidence to numerous select committees including the Communities and Local Government Committee, Work and Pensions Committee, Treasury Committee, and Education Committee, as well as committees in Holyrood and the Welsh Assembly. Centre researchers sit on numerous government advisory committees, many dozens over the years. Current memberships include Climate Change Committee, Social Security Advisory Committee, OBR advisory board, ONS Technical Advisory Panel on Consumer Prices, Scottish Parliament's External Experts Network, Senior Salary Review Body and Office of Tax Simplification. In addition, CPP researchers have in the past led or contributed to reviews for government on inflation measurement and pension auto-enrolment. CPP researchers have been involved in, and affected, the development of policy on savings taxation, corporate tax, welfare design, pensions, spending allocations to devolved nations, higher education finance, childcare and many others. A typical example of the way that our research agenda has interacted with policy is our work on inequality, risk and insurance; this work helps meet the demands from government and other stakeholders to understand what is driving inequalities across and within generations, and what policies might be effective in mitigating them. Our creation of a consistent series of income inequality data and measures over time was seminal in the debate on long-run inequality trends and has underpinned a 25-year collaboration with government statisticians responsible for the official inequality data (Households Below Average Income). Similarly, IFS work on public finances and taxation, supported by CPP investments in our tax and benefit simulation model TAXBEN and the various academic studies that have informed its design and operation, has been hugely influential in informing the public debate, e.g. through our annual Green Budget analysis and through our responses to fiscal events. Centre funding ensures that IFS can make its contribution to the policy debate in an informed and non-partisan way. The fact that the Centre sits within IFS guarantees that our researchers work within an institutional structure that commits them to independence and intellectual rigour. It also gives them access to a strong communications team, and provides contacts and expertise in engaging with the media, policymakers and wider community. *Public engagement* CPP has been at the forefront of public engagement since it was first funded. As well as aiming our outputs at the top academic journals, we also serve the public and media directly through publishing straightforwardly written and open-access reports and observations (blogs) as well as writing for newspapers and engaging directly with print and broadcast journalists. We receive well over 1,000 mentions a year in hard-copy UK national newspapers and more than 20,000 on news sites. We were one of the first economics institutions in the UK to have a website with substantial open-access content, and some of our tax and benefit simulation models and tools were made accessible to policymakers and the general population over the web as early as the mid 1990s. The website now has 1.3 million page views per year. We are active on Twitter (31.5K followers) and Facebook and produce a range of videos (YouTube: 37.5K views in 2018 and 45K in 2017; Twitter: 74K views in 2018 and 34.8K in 2017; Facebook: 7.6K views in 2018 and 44.3K views in 2017) to disseminate our research to a wide audience.

Results and Impact A lower cap on the total amount of benefits that households can receive comes into force tomorrow, affecting four times as many households as the previous benefit cap. Like the previous cap it will apply to out-of-work households of working age (with some exemptions, mainly due to disability). The cap will now be £23,000 a year in London and £20,000 elsewhere (there are lower caps for single adults without children set at £15,410 in London and £13,400 elsewhere). This compares to £26,000 nationwide under the previous cap, which has been in place since 2013. In this observation we look at the implications of a lower cap for government spending, the impact on the households affected, and how they might respond.

Results and Impact This presentation was given at the launch of the report 'What happens when employers are obliged to nudge? Automatic enrolment and pension saving in the UK'.

Concerns about undersaving for retirement have led to policymakers implementing reforms aimed at boosting saving. One such policy is 'automatic enrolment' - where rather than having to choose to contribute to a pension, employees have actively to choose not to save in one. Since October 2012, the UK has been in the process of implementing the first-ever national roll-out of such a policy. This paper exploits the gradual roll-out of this obligation for employers to enrol their employees into a pension to estimate its effect on how much is saved in workplace pensions for private sector employees.

Results and Impact Household incomes have fared very badly in the decade since the financial crisis. In 2015-16 (the latest data available), real median income in the UK was only 3.7% higher than it was at the start of the recession (2007-08) - usually incomes grow by around 2% each year. And new research from the Institute for Fiscal Studies suggests that if the government sticks to planned tax and benefit reforms, and the latest Office for Budget Responsibility's (OBR) macroeconomic forecast is right, that slow growth is likely to continue - averaging just 0.8% per year between 2015-16 and 2021-22. Article written by Andrew Hood and Tom Waters published in the Huffington Post and reprinted on the IFS website.

Results and Impact New IFS research finds that providing school breakfasts free to all children in disadvantaged English primary schools helps pupils to make two months' additional progress over the course of a year. These gains seem to be driven by better behaviour and concentration in the classroom, meaning that even students who don't eat breakfast at school can benefit from the improved learning environment. These benefits come at a low cost relative to other programmes with a similar impact on attainment.

Results and Impact There is increasing concern about the sustainability of household debt. We analyse the debt holding position of UK households, setting out a definition of "problem debt" and analysing those households captured by this measure. We find that "younger" and poorer households are more likely to be in problem debt. Our measure of problem debt highlights that focus on metrics such as overall debt or overall debt compared to income do not account for the different repayment terms of different debts and that examinig and meaure of based on the share of income that household devote to servicing their debts has important implications for which households are identified as facing problems.

Results and Impact Article for VoxEu: Governments have long used taxation to correct for the socially costly overconsumption of alcohol, but as the external cost of overconsumption varies across drinkers, a single tax rate is not optimal. This column argues that variation in preferences for different products and in price responsiveness across heavy and light drinkers provides scope to improve welfare by varying tax rates across alcohol products. The proposed framework is well suited to addressing other sources of external costs, such as obesity.
