Wealth taxes, with Charlotte Pickles, John Muellbauer, Laura Gardiner and Torsten Bell

March 6, 2018

Britain owns a record £13 trillion of wealth – a figure that has grown much faster than GDP in recent decades, while the share of tax collected from it has stayed the same. Given the huge fiscal pressures Britain faces in the coming years and decades, from an ageing population and rising health costs to falling home ownership and poor social mobility, is Britain’s under-taxation sustainable? What does the future hold, and the past teach us, about wealth taxation in Britain?
