The Millennials debate

Video

  • Economics and Finance

With Martha Lane Fox, Madsen Pirie, Ed Howker, Adam Lent and Matthew Taylor

The Millennial generation have grown up in a radically changing consumer landscape, have witnessed a dramatic shift in power from producer to consumer, are connected and empowered by technological change and the social web, and yet, crucially, face an uncertain and, for many, insecure economic future.

Watch our panel as they ask: Will the entrepreneurial drive of the Millennial generation shape the zeitgeist for the first half of 21st century, harnessing transformations in the way we live and work to drive up productivity and living standards?

Speakers: Martha Lane Fox, the UK’s Digital Champion, founder of Go ON UK, founder of Luckyvoice and co-founder of lastminute.com; Madsen Pirie, founder and president of the Adam Smith Institute; Ed Howker, journalist, broadcaster and co-author of "Jilted Generation: how Britain bankrupted its youth"; and Adam Lent, director of projects, RSA.
