Can We Build an Inclusive Economy?

Danielle Walker Palmour
Wed 20 November 2019,

Commentators from across the political spectrum agree that the current economic system in the UK does not serve everyone well. However, there is less agreement about what can be done about it and the economic thinking, approaches or tools that might be required to begin to address the problem. Do we need iconoclasm or incrementalism? In addition, the context of climate emergency, low institutional trust and divisive politics creates a feverish public discourse. For the past six years, Friends Provident Foundation has been asking the economists and activists whether and how the economy might serve society better. Danielle Walker Palmour, director of the foundation, shares what they have learned so far and the new directions for the future.

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with

Triodos Bank
