‘A gem of liberal political economy worthy of Meade, Keynes and Hobhouse’ Peter Mandelson, Observer

Ground-breaking, challenging and at times provocative, Adair Turner’s Just Capital addresses a vital question: how do we combine economic dynamism with social inclusion and environmental responsibility? The answer lies in embracing the power of market economics without accepting the simple dogmas of extreme free-market and conservative philosophy. Turner’s approach combines rigorous economic analysis with a clear vision of an attractive social philosophy, a philosophy that rejects 20th century socialism as much as conservative laissez-faire. With an introduction by the internationally renowned social and political philosopher, Ralf Dahrendorf, Just Capital will both provoke debate and offer radical new solutions to questions that have perplexed both left and right for decades.
