The Resolution Foundation hosted a policy seminar to discuss the extent to which lower income households, who saw low income growth in the pre-crisis period, borrowed in order to sustain their consumption.  It also considered whether, with credit conditions now constrained, broader based income growth could be important for boosting demand in the economy.
