A challenging agenda-setting work of economic and political philosophy in the mould of Will Hutton's The State We're InGround-breaking, challenging and at times provocative, JUST CAPITAL will explore how we combine, reconcile and, if necessary, trade-off a dynamic and growing economy with an inclusive and environmentally responsible society. It will consider in particular, and debunk, the proposition that the 'globalisation' of the world economy limits our ability to combine economic success and a 'good' society. It will explore how information technology is transforming businesses and economic structures, but challenge conventional assumptions about the social implications of the 'knowledge' society.Liberal in its economic and political outlook, and committed to a market economy, Turner's book will also identify where the market is failing and where the state needs to and can usefully intervene to achieve desirable social and environmental ends. Turner strongly believes that, provided we make sensible choices and reject confused conventional wisdoms, we can successfully combine economic dynamism with an equitable society, with adequate provision for all.With an Introduction by Ralf Dahrendorf, the internationally renowned social and political philosopher, JUST CAPITAL will both provoke debate and offer radical new solutions to questions that have perplexed both left and right for decades.
