For A Wider View

 

The State We’re In
Will Hutton

Claimed to be the most widely read economics book published in the last fifty years. A polemic about the short-term approaches of the City and the destructive effects of the last Conservative Government. Well argued and convincing – even if you disagree.

A play and description of what the author learned on a trip to Israel and Palestine about both open and closed minds – and those who have learned and changed.
