A new economic and political philosophy for Britain: Meet the Leaders Replay with Will Hutton and Vicky Pryce

CLICK HERE to watch the replay of our Meet the Leaders event with Will Hutton and Vicky Pryce, where they discussed how an alternative economic and political philosophy would remake a better Britain.

The event, which took place on Thursday 30th May 2024, was a Radix Big Tent Meet the Leaders interactive webinar which saw ample opportunity for online guests to contribute.

Will Hutton’s passionate book gave 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.
