Robert Peston – How to Save the Economy, Democracy, and Our Sanity

In Conversation With Kishan Koria

Join Logo

The ITV Political Editor and award-winning journalist Robert Peston joins us to ask: has the West gone bust – economically, politically and socially? Or is there another way?

We in the West appear to be at a year zero, with the seeming end of the relative peace and prosperity we took for granted. Growth has vanished. The poorest are desperately struggling to heat their homes and to eat.

How bad will it get? And how do we simultaneously rebuild prosperity, democracy and social cohesion? Can we have it all, or will we have to make very significant financial sacrifices in the coming years, knowingly and willingly, to restore that national sense of pride and solidarity of purpose?

Now Robert Peston – ITV Political Editor, host of Peston on Sunday, and the winner of more than 30 awards for journalism – and his show editor and co-author Kishan Koria join us live on stage in London with a plan to save our prosperity, our democracy, and our sanity. If the chaos of the last few years mark the end of the old order as we knew it, what will and should follow, to save our prosperity, our democracy and our sanity.

It’s time to abandon pessimism and fatalism and look for answers. Robert Peston doesn’t have all of them. But he will start an important debate about how to allow us all to hope again.
