RSA Journal Issue 2 2015


In this issue:

The financial crisis may be over, but our economy is in dire need of a fresh paradigm if we're to produce a society that enables everyone to flourish. 

Gar Alperovitz argues that capitalist's pendulum must swing from corporations to communities, whilst Mariana Mazzucato encourages the emergence of state-led innovation.  Jeremy Rifkin extols the virtues of a near-zero marginal cost society and Anthony Painter argues deep systemic changes are required to fix our broken economic system. Other contributors include: Rowan Conway, Matthew Taylor, Steve Hilton, Jennifer Morgan, Chris Hewett, Jon Bright and Roger Taylor.
