Event description

Description

Where is today’s capitalist economy headed?

There are fewer and fewer defenders, even among business leaders, of the way the current system operates which despite its capacity to create jobs brings growing levels of inequality, poor levels of investment, ever more job insecurity and the diminution of the concept of career . Trust in business is falling to new levels. But with little appetite for a return to the socialist economy of the twentieth century, how can capitalism best be reformed or transformed?

Hertford Conversations launches a series of debates with leading thinkers – Debating Capitalism with the first talk of our series led by Tom Kibasi.

Tom Kibasi is the current director of the Institute for Public policy research, widely regarded as one of the UK's most influential think tanks. Since taking over as director in 2016, Tom has overseen key research into the NHS, the impact of Brexit, and the relationship between Tech and Society. Most notably, Tom was the editor of the recent report: 'Prosperity and Justice: A plan for the New Economy,' (2018) which was widely heralded as a paradigm shifting assertion of the need for a reformed British economy. Before joining IPP, Tom was a partner at McKinsey and Company.

Come and join us in the Baring Room, Hertford College, on Thursday 29 November. Tickets are free but please RSVP.
