David Cameron and Ed Miliband are setting out their economic stalls to business leaders today, in speeches to the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).
The event carries special significance this year, just a week on from the spending review that will dominate the political debate for months to come.
The prime minister is promising a strong private sector-led recovery - upon which the government's hope of survival rest.
Mr Miliband meanwhile is under pressure to spell out Labour's evolving economic strategy beyond criticising the coalition's programme of cuts.
