People Get Ready! Taking on the City and the State (2 of 3)

Sun 22.09.19
11am – 12:30pm

This session will turn to two domains in which a radical Labour government is likely to encounter serious obstacles and opposition. The first of these is the City of London and the overweening power of financial markets in the British economy, addressing the question of when and how to take on the might of finance capital. The second domain is the British State and the need to democratize, decentralize, and develop new models, approaches, and centres of power in the apparatus of the State.

This is the second of three sessions
