Abstract

The Coalition government that came to power in the UK in 2010 is implementing unprecedented welfare reforms. These have the effect of substantially reducing payments to a wide range of low-income and out-of-work households. This article examines the local and regional impact of the reforms, showing how national reforms have a sharply different impact in different places. Taken as a whole, the welfare reforms affect derived areas most and are widening the gap in prosperity between the best and worst local economies across the UK.
