American Capitalism in the 21st Century: does Britain want to go there?

Monday 14 May, 6.30pm
New Theatre, East Building

Do we want the economic dynamism, productivity gains and material wealth of the new American capitalism, or is Britain prepared to sacrifice some of these in favour of other values? And what does such a choice entail?

Robert B Reich, US Secretary of Labour under Bill Clinton and professor of social and economic policy at Brandeis University, will be drawing from his US best-selling book, The Future of Success , to answer this essential dilemma in a public lecture organised by the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

The lecture will be held on Monday 14 May at 6.30pm in the New Theatre, East Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. The event is free and open to all, no ticket is required. For further information please call 020 7955 6043 or email events@lse.ac.uk|
