Ending the mercenary society, with writer, economic thinker and commentator Will Hutton
At our last public meeting of 2017, jointly sponsored by My Fair London and The Equality Trust, Will Hutton will present some of his ideas about how Britain might move towards becoming a more equal society. Have we reached some sort of tipping point in the debate about what follows after neo-liberalism? Is now the time when the views that he has been promoting for many years finally gain some traction? And what difference will BREXIT make? There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
Will Hutton is currently Principal of Hertford College at Oxford University. He has been a leading economic commentator for the last 25 years with a regular column in the Observer. Will is a prolific author publishing the hugely influential The State We’re In in 1995 and, more recently, How Good Can We Be – Ending the Mercenary Society and Building a Great Country (2015). In all his books Will argues for a stakeholder capitalism rather than the current shareholder capitalism. He suggests we can create a capitalism that takes into account workers, consumers, wider society and the environment rather than just the interests of shareholders.
Come along to what we expect to be a stimulating and lively debate. As usual the event is free to attend but we will be asking for contributions towards the costs of hiring the venue. We will be offering refreshments at the end of the evening.
