Socialist Dreams

1 x 45 HD

From Stalin's gulags to weak growth in planned economies to the fall of the Berlin Wall, socialism has a chequered history. Is it a mistake to imagine that equality can be engineered through socialist planning? Should we be sceptical of those wrapped in fine ideals or is there a form of socialism that can deliver on the dream?

 

Equal is Unfair author Yaron Brook, economist and The Making of Global Capitalism author Leo Panitch, vice chair of the Conservative party for Candidates Kemi Badenoch and philosopher and activist Judith Balso debate the perils and promise of socialism.
