The Insecurity Cycle Workshop

November 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

CBR/PPSRI Workshop: The Insecurity Cycle
How far can ‘free’ markets serve the interests of society?  Can labour and financial markets be brought into balance with each other?  What drives the conventional wisdom that appears to set the parameters to public policy, and which might help to explain why it has been so difficult to bring about lasting institutional change following the global financial crisis?  These are among the issues addressed by Sue Konzelmann, Simon Deakin, Marc Fovargue-Davies and Frank Wilkinson in their book, Labour, Finance and Inequality: The Insecurity Cycle in British Public Policy, published in April 2018.  The Centre for Business Research (‘CBR’) and the Public Policy Strategic Research Initiative (PPSRI) will be holding a workshop on 8 November to discuss themes emerging from the book.
