Funding the Future (formerly Tax Research UK) is a blog founded by Richard Murphy, Professor of Accounting Practice at University of Sheffield Management School.

- After quite a lot of agonising over the last few weeks, the eagle-eyed will note that the blog got its new title this morning.
- I will remain attached to Tax Research UK for a long time to come, and my LLP will remain with that name, and will continue to publish this blog. However, that name really does not describe what much of this blog is about now. It is instead, quite literally, about funding the future. The focus is on how we pay for the society we want. I think funding the future describes that quest.
- If after a few weeks there is no adverse reaction to the new name the internet address might be changed. However, that will require no action on anyone's part when it happens: all addresses will continue to work.
- And, most importantly, publication will continue as before. Doing that is my contribution to getting the funding for the future that we want.
