At this event David Soskice will discuss his new book, co-authored with Professor Torben Iversen, Democracy and Prosperity: The Reinvention of Capitalism in a Turbulent Century.

It is a widespread view that democracy and the advanced nation-state are in crisis, weakened by globalisation and undermined by global capitalism, in turn explaining rising inequality and mounting populism.

At this event David Soskice will discuss his new book, co-authored with Professor Torben Iversen, Democracy and Prosperity: The Reinvention of Capitalism in a Turbulent Century, which argues this view is wrong: advanced democracies are resilient, and their enduring historical relationship with capitalism has been mutually beneficial.

This event is part of our MSc in Public Policy Masterclass series, open to all.
