It’s time to build bridges

This government’s assumption that a growing economy will benefit everyone is flawed. Such thinking has always prevailed in Whitehall. It has perpetuated the damaging view that it doesn’t matter if growth is driven by a limited number of regionallyconfined sectors.

The result is that our economy is dangerously skewed towards London and the southeast, regions that thrive on consumption rather than production, on services rather than manufacturing, and are the only parts of the country to see growth at pre-crash levels.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect's April issue: Four writers explain how our relationship with death has changed in as technological and medical advances have been made in recent years. Joanna Bourke explores how modern life is now able to live on through social media sites, Cathy Rentzenbrink explains how (referring to the case of her own brother) a “twilight zone,” in which someone is neither alive nor dead, has been created through medical advances. Michael Marmot argues that we are experiencing a change in regards to our life expectancy—over the course of a series of decades we have seen life expectancy increase, but what do recent decreases actually mean. Meanwhile, Philip Ball writes about his participation in an experiment to create a second brain from his own flesh. Elsewhere in the issues: Jane Kinninmont questions whether the Saudi Crown Price, Mohammed bin Salman, really knows what he’s doing, Daniel Howden charts how European attitudes to migrants might be changing and Jay Elwes asks: Does a Cornish mine hold the answer to questions about the UK’s green future?
