The case for inclusive economic growth set out in this article is underpinned by the two main arguments outlined in its companion piece, published in Soundings 68.1. These are, firstly, that the best policies for economic growth are inclusive: there is no trade-off between pro-growth and pro-equality policies; and, secondly, that reducing gender inequalities is itself an important means of increasing economic growth: gender is at the centre of processes of production, as well as (re)distribution.
