A new economic and political philosophy for Britain: Meet the Leaders Webinar with Will Hutton


Watch an introductory video by Vicky Pryce here.

Join author and commentator Will Hutton in conversation with leading economist and Chair of Fellows at Radix Big Tent, Vicky Pryce, about Will’s new book This Time No Mistakes: How to Remake Britain. How would an alternative economic and political philosophy remake a better Britain?

The event, which will take place at 6:00pm on Thursday 30th May, is a Radix Big Tent Meet the Leaders interactive webinar with ample opportunity for guests to contribute.

Will Hutton’s passionate book gives us plenty to discuss: it shows how the right and left have gone wrong over the course of the last century – and how we can remake a better Britain. He advocates an alternative economic and political philosophy, especially if we are to ward off a nihilist populism. Two great traditions – ethical socialism and progressive liberalism – can be brought together to offer a different way forward.

Capitalism must be repurposed to work for the common good. And our degraded democracy, the necessary means for such change, must be reformed. According to Bloomsbury, Hutton’s proposals are inspiring and rooted in values held by the overwhelming majority of us. Above all, they are achievable.

Upon registration, you will be able to leave any questions or comments for Will Hutton to review during the webinar. These will be shared with her beforehand. Please note you will also be able to ask questions via the chat throughout the event.
