Event description

Description

You are cordially invited to a special Bookshop Barnie on Monday 3 April. Phil Mullan will discuss his latest book, Creative Destruction: How to Start an Economic Renaissance (Policy Press), with Austin Williams, director of the Future Cities Project. This is the official launch of the book.

While governments talk of rebalancing the economy, Mullan talks about a fourth industrial revolution - a revolution that doesn't prioritise holding onto jobs, but "lets the low-productivity parts of the economy go". Discuss.

As Mullan puts it, we have "a zombie economy that is being propped up to ensure the semblance of life". So is it time to turn off the life support, or continue CPR?

The event kicks off with drinks from 6.30pm with the main discussion starting at 7pm.

BUY THE BOOK

You can buy Creative Destruction from Policy Press or Amazon.

The book can be pre-ordered from Policy Press at 20% discount here, or 35% discount by signing up to the Policy Press mailing list.
