Everyone’s talking about it. Too few, however, seem to have a convincing solution to the current cost-of-living crisis blighting the national (and global) economy. It’s been a rocky past few years to say the least, so it’s no surprise that many of us are seeking much-needed relief. Trouble is, it seems that things may get worse before they get better.

Accelerating inflation, breakdowns in the global supply chain, rising interest rates and insufficient pay rises – the onslaught of bad news is overwhelming for anyone. Doomscrolling seldom helps anyone. So, in the coming weeks and months, London Business Magazine will be bringing you a series of articles and reports on today’s economic landscape, to help you cut through the jargon.

With its distinct style, London Business will feature pieces written from dynamic and under-reported angles that are sure to leave you with a clearer long-term perspective. We’ll take a look at how small businesses are coping, the peculiarities of the post-Covid labour market and the present state of food insecurity. As far as solutions are concerned, London Business will also consider innovative policy ideas like a 4-day week, Universal Basic Income and the Green New Deal.

We might not be able to alleviate the hardships faced by many now, but hopefully this series will serve as a small step to prevent the crisis next time.

As part of our Over to You feature, London Business Magazine wants to hear about your stories and experiences of the cost-of-living crisis, in London and beyond. How has your business or household been impacted so far? What actions are you taking to overcome the challenges? Where do you see yourself economically by the end of the year?
