4th Nature of Prosperity Dialogue —
An Economy That Works For All
London, Queen Elizabeth II Centre, 24 October 2018, 11.30am—5pm
The idea of building ‘an economy that works for all’ has an almost universal appeal. Its roots can be traced to a call made fifty years ago by Senator Robert F Kennedy (RFK) to address the ‘poverty of satisfaction, dignity and purpose that afflicts us all’. But what does it mean in practice for an advanced economy today, ten years after the financial crisis, faced with imminent climate change, persistent inequality, and continuing economic fragilities? Our fourth Nature of Prosperity dialogue addresses this challenge and teases out some of its most pressing policy implications.
We’re delighted to be joined in Westminster by Kerry Kennedy, US human rights lawyer and daughter of RFK, Clive Lewis MP, Shadow Treasury Minister, Miatta Fahnbulleh, Chief Executive of the New Economics Foundation, Michael Jacobs, Director of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice, and Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury.
Thanks to all participants for joining us on the 24 Oct for lively debates on the politics of economic and social justice in the face of climate breakdown. The photos from the event are now live on our Facebook Page. Watch this space for video and audio recordings of the event.
