“There are fewer and fewer defenders, even among business leaders, of the way the current system operates which – despite its capacity to create jobs – brings growing levels of inequality, poor levels of investment, ever more job insecurity and the diminution of the concept of career. Trust in business is falling to new levels. But with little appetite for a return to the socialist economy of the twentieth century, how can capitalism best be reformed or transformed? Hertford Conversations launches a series of debates with leading thinkers – Debating Capitalism.”
