Londonís Changing Economy Since 2008

Source: GLA Economics

From the Introduction:

Since the 2008/09 recession output growth has been sluggish by historical post-recession standards whilst employment growth has been uncharacteristically and unexpectedly strong. This has led to a stalling in productivity growth. It has been argued that at least some of the strength seen in the labour market has come from increased labour market flexibility and, within that, potentially less stable employment. Similarly, it has been argued that wages have failed to keep up with rising costs of living. In order to look into these issues GLA Economics was requested by the Economy Committee of the London Assembly to examine how London’s economy has changed over the post-recession period, and to identify how those changes have affected (both positively and negatively) London’s employees and employers.
