David Cameron and Ed Balls will both set out what they want to see from the economy in separate speeches later today.
The Prime Minister will announce a £100 million cash injection into the "Business Bank", where the Government provides loans to entrepreneurs looking to start their own business.
The Conservative party leader will also claim the Government has reached a significant milestone by awarding the 20,000th loan to an entrepreneur.
However, Labour's Ed Balls will hit out at the drop in real-terms wages and criticise the Government for failing to act.
The Shadow Chancellor is expected to say average earnings having fallen by £1,600 in real terms since 2010, the current parliament will be the first since the 1920s when real earnings will be lower at the end than they were at the beginning.
