Keynes’ economics laid the foundation for a version of capitalism combining the merits of both markets and government intervention. But his humane, mixed economy vision has been eroded by the political turn to ‘free markets’ and globalisation. What is the future of capitalism given the tensions today between global markets and rising nationalism, and the challenges posed by technological change?

With Carolina Alves (University of Cambrige, Girton College), Roger Backhouse (University of Birmingham), Meghnad Desai (emeritus professor of economics at the London School of Economics and a Labour peer), David Runciman (University of Oxford) and chair, Romesh Vaitilingam.
