This event is part of a series of lectures by prominent thinkers and policymakers considering the future of capitalism, inequality, education and skills to mark Ruskin College’s 125th anniversary.

In This Time No Mistakes: How to Remake Britain. Hutton considers what a British state fit for the 21st century should look like.

Topics under discussion will include:

  • What intellectual traditions can we draw inspiration from to address the UK’s present problems?
  • How can we transition from an ‘I society’ to a ‘We society’ where all are treated fairly?
  • How can businesses both increase economic growth and reduce social inequality?
