RSA Chief Executive’s Lecture 2015 

The 2008 crisis has subsided. The UK economy, we are told, is thriving, but from low pay to inequality to sustainability, a conventionally successful economy fails to align with long-term human flourishing.

How might asking ‘what economy do we want?’ enable us to look again at radical ideas for economic reform, and how might new forms of engagement help us think and act more boldly?


This talk will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext. Live subtitles are used in museums, galleries and other cultural venues for talks, tours and lectures. The speakers’ words are projected openly, or displayed using handheld tablets.
