Progressive capitalism: Britain’s debate in context

Policy Network will host a public debate on 'Progressive capitalism: Britain’s debate in context'.

The continued negative impact of the crisis on western economies has heightened the need for deeper understanding of the way capitalism works and the impact that different models of capitalism have on how competitive advantages are secured:  debate over the merits of co-ordinated models of market capitalism versus liberal market capitalism reverberate across political capitals. The crisis has also served to remind policymakers of the fundamental importance of public institutions in upholding the regulatory and legal framework required for a flourishing market economy. Recasting the role of the state in the face of major political impediments is once again central territory for progressive politicians.

Speakers
David Sainsbury, Labour peer and author of Progressive Capitalism: How to Achieve Economic Growth, Liberty and Social Justice
Wouter Bos, former deputy prime minister of the Netherlands and former leader of the Labour Party (PvdA)
Jeffry Frieden, professor of government, Harvard University and author of Lost Decades: The Making of America's Debt Crisis and the Long Recovery
Kitty Ussher, economist and former economic secretary to the UK Treasury (tbc)

The event will take place on Thursday 12th September 2013, from 17:00 - 19:00 at Broadway House, Tothill Street, Westminster, SW1H 9NQ.
