Book Launch: Zero Base Policy

Date: Tuesday 21 July 2009

Time: 06:00pm - 08:00pm

Speaker: Dr Madsen Pirie
Location: 23 Great Smith Street
Title: Zero Base Policy

Britain is broken. Its finances are in ruins, its taxation is chaotic and punitive, its public services fail to reach adequate standards, and its public administration shows no coherence and commands no respect. In Zero Base Policy Madsen Pirie urges a new approach. Instead of tinkering at the edges by trying to improve existing policies, he urges a re-think to first principles, asking in each case what are the purposes and the objectives sought. The policies derived from such an approach make a clean break with the past, setting out how Britain can be put right.

Ranging across all areas of public policy, Madsen Pirie presents the radical agenda which can transform the nation from ‘broken Britain’ into a dynamic society and a successful economy, one which achieves the objectives its citizens yearn for. It should be bedtime reading for those who aspire to govern Britain in the future.
