Wealth of our nation – new research

Jointly with Ashwin Kumar I’ve today published a Smith Institute discussion paper that explores the new Wealth and Assets data to see how the wealth distribution alters across UK households over time. It shows the inextricable link between housing and overall wealth distribution, the importance of dealing with consumer indebtedness and highlights how many people who receive inheritances do so at exactly the time when they need it the least.

It includes a typology of wealth that was one of the highest-read FT blogs and there was a news comment in the Daily Telegraph as well.
