Patrick Diamond says that imaginative use of the state can actively shape the future of British capitalism, and business experts Stefan Stern and Vicky Pryce explain why this idea doesn’t frighten business.

In the Fabian Interview Mary Riddell interviews Ed Balls and find the shadow chancellor in accommodating mood to the Lib Dems.

Stewart Lansley explains why inequality is bad for the economy.

Nicola Smith says that the debate over good capitalism needs to connect with people’s real life concerns.

David Coats shows what good capitalism looks like in practice.

Kitty Ussher and Stephen Beer tell Labour not to turn against the City.
