“In my book Rebalancing Society…radical renewal beyond left, right, and center (2015), I contend that a healthy society balances power across its three sectors—public, private, and what I prefer to call plural (rather than “civil society”, so that it can be seen to take its place alongside the other two). Many societies have lost that balance, especially since 1989 when mainstream economists declared erroneously that capitalism had triumphed. Balance triumphed. The communist states were utterly out of balance while the successful states of the West were not, relatively speaking. The unfortunate result of this misunderstanding is that capitalism has been triumphing ever since. I thus began to explore how that balance can be restored. Progress is being made—conceptually at least! I shall discuss that".
