IFS Zooms In: The Economy


Is the UK spending enough on defence?

Season 3, Ep. 5

Since we were last on air, Russia has invaded the Ukraine, and defence has come to the fore of the public conversation.

How much does the UK spend on defence? How has this changed over time? And what will Russia's invasion mean for UK defence spending?

This week, we speak with Malcolm Chalmers, Deputy Director-General at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) and Ben Zaranko, IFS Public Finance expert.
