Time: 18:30 - 20:00

Additionally, the talk will seek to address the issue of powers available to City Hall in the light of the devolution question.

The-Fourth-Revolution Book cover

Book Launch: The Fourth Revolution The Global Race to Reinvent The State

Date: Monday 10th November
Time: 18:30 - 20:00
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre
Speakers: John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge

 

Is Britain falling behind in the global race to reinvent the state?  Britain has led previous attempts to reinvent the state, from the Hobbesian security revolution of the 17th century, to the liberal, meritocratic revolution of the 19th century, to the welfare revolution of the early 20th century. We are now embarked on a new revolution, driven by IT, unsustainable debts and the rise of emerging markets. But Britain is much less well placed to lead this revolution.

 

John Micklethwait is the Editor-in-Chief of The Economist.

Adrian Wooldridge is The Economist's management editor and writes the Schumpeter column.

They have previously co-authored five books together: "The Witch Doctors", "A Future Perfect", "The Company", "The Right Nation" and "God is Back".

 

Suggested hashtag for this event for Twitter users: #LSEstate

This event is free and open to all with no ticket or pre-registration required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For any queries see LSE Events FAQ or contact us at events@lse.ac.uk or 0207 955 6043.
