Rising levels of inequality, social exclusion, environmental degradation and political divisiveness are a of source growing disillusionment with our capitalist system.

This discussion brings together the editors of a special issue of the Oxford Review of Economic Policy on capitalism. It includes articles by leading economists from around the world on the problems with the existing system and the changes that need to be made to address them. At the heart of the arguments presented is the notion of cohesive communities and societies, and their role alongside globalisation, privatisation and financialisation in restoring trust in capitalism.

  • Diane Coyle, Professor of Public Policy, Cambridge University
  • Colin Mayer, Professor of Management Studies, Oxford University
  • Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator, Financial Times
  • Charles Godfray, Director, Oxford Martin School (chair)
