Within the worlds of finance, business and politics, decision makers often have little understanding of the other spheres and their importance; the language and discourse within each is often mutually incomprehensible. Views of the other spheres are often massively and dangerously oversimplified.
This mutual misunderstanding, both of the other spheres, and their intricate interconnectedness, is damaging to society and the economy, especially when governments are increasingly looking to business and finance to address pressing social issues such as net-zero and levelling up.
How can this mutually incomprehension gap be bridged? How can finance and business be positively engaged in politics beyond a narrow self-interest? How to identify and utilise trigger points which can lead to radical change? How to develop a new narrative of the political economy?
