People living in the UK rely heavily on markets for insurance against social risks. Such markets can vary in their distributional effects. This talk examines the political economy of UK credit and annuity markets in the twenty-first century. It assesses how these two markets have developed in a context of rapid technological change, and whether changing information asymmetries are exacerbating existing inequalities.
