Prospect Magazine  |  August 2017  


In Prospect’s August issue: Adam Tooze, Helen Thompson, Ben Chu, Julian Baggini, Tom Clark and Hepzibah Anderson reveal the secret history of the banking crisis and its impact over the last decade. Tooze examines the secret history itself, suggesting the work done to repair the world’s finances could mean another crisis is just around the corner. Chu asks why more people at the top of the banks that failed haven’t faced more serious repercussions, and Anderson shows how post-crash Britain has retreated into cosiness. Elsewhere in the issue Alison Wolf asks whether universities are doing any good, and David Goldblatt explores how the decision to take football off free-to-view television in Argentina could backfire for the government.

Also in this issue: Kasia Boddy asks why writers are still addicted to watching boxing despite falling viewing figures, Andrew Dickson profiles Tom Stoppard, Stephen Bush explains how Jeremy Corbyn learned to compromise and David Omand outlines the cyber-security challenges facing the UK and the wider world.
The leading magazine of ideas, current affairs and culture

Prospect has established itself as the must-read title for those with a keen interest in politics, economics, history, philosophy, science, literature and the arts.

Prospect’s depth sets it apart. Each issue brings together the sharpest minds on the events and ideas that define the modern world. What results is an entertaining, informative and open-minded magazine that mixes compelling argument and clear headed analysis with elegance and vitality in design.

As a Prospect reader you will benefit from:

- The big ideas that are shaping our world
- Independent thinking and debate
- In-depth analysis by the world's best writers
- A wide range of opinions, to challenge your own

Prospect delivers cutting-edge and contrarian argument in-depth and in advance from voices including Mikhail Gorbachev, Will Self and Joseph Stiglitz. You may not always agree—but we will promote great debate and challenge current thinking.

"Political writing for grown-ups, well beyond the party political playpen... Europe's outstanding political and cultural monthly"

Andrew Marr, BBC Presenter and Political Commentator

"Prospect is simply the best of its kind: provocative yet detached; thoughtful, and elegantly written. An important read without being self-important"

Jonathan Dimbleby, Broadcast Journalist
