What has COVID taught us about social inequality in the UK? Simon Szreter and Hilary Cooper are authors of the book After the virus: Lessons from the past for a better future which reveals the deep roots of the UK’s vulnerability and sets out a powerful manifesto for change post-Covid-19.

They will be in conversation about the social and economic inequality challenges after the pandemic with Professor Diane Coyle, author of Cogs and Monsters: What economics is, and what it should be, which argues that economics needs to change to keep pace with the 21st century and the digital economy.

Professor Diane Coyle is the Bennett Professor of Public Policy at the University of Cambridge. Diane co-directs the Bennett Institute where she heads research under the themes of progress and productivity.

Professor Simon is Professor of History and Public Policy, a Fellow of St John's College, an Honorary Research Associate of the Cambridge Group for the History of Population and Social Structure and a member of the Centre for Science and Policy.

Hilary Cooper is a Cambridge-based economic consultant, researcher and writer. Her early career was as a government economist and senior policy maker.
