James Plunkett discusses with Ivan six things which he thinks should be better known.
James Plunkett has spent his career thinking laterally about the complicated relationships between individuals and the state. First as an advisor to Gordon Brown, then a leading economic researcher and writer, and then in the charity sector, helping people struggling at the front-line of economic change. James combines a deep understanding of social issues with an appreciation of how change is playing out not in the ivory tower, but in the reality of people’s lives. James' first book is End State: https://www.hachette.co.uk/titles/james-plunkett/end-state/9781398702202/.
