How To Academy: Mervyn King Meets Martin Wolf

We are living in an age when economic failings have shaken faith in global capitalism.

Political failings have undermined trust in liberal democracy and in the very notion of truth.

The ties that ought to bind open markets to free and fair elections are being strained and rejected, even in democracy’s notional heartlands.

Some now argue that capitalism is better without democracy; others that democracy is better without capitalism.

Live on stage in London and via livestream, Martin Wolf – one of the wisest voices on global affairs – will argue that for all its recent failings – slowing growth, increasing inequality, widespread popular disillusion – democratic capitalism, though inherently fragile, remains the best system we know for human flourishing. Most important of all, he will present a programme for renewal, with fresh ideas to rescue our democracy.
