George Lakey talks about Viking Economics

8 October 2017, Glasgow

A divided Britain: what can we learn from the Nordics?

George Lakey's newest book has a provocative answer

Viking Economics helps us envision a different way of organising our economy to put people and the planet first.

“It tells a story of economic change and the foundations on which it was built at a time when it is so obvious that such narratives are so desperately needed in modern political discourse… if he is right, then the story he imparts has to be told, understood and acted upon.” Times Higher Education Magazine
