In this episode, Andrew asks whether today’s socialists, who try very hard to distance themselves from the socialists of the past, are really any different?
What are today’s socialists promising that yesterday’s didn’t promise in the past? And are their methods any different? If not, why should we expect any different outcomes?
Nic then asks if we can apply the same logic to centrists. To do this, we discuss the different types of centrists, and ask whether you can have a hard and a soft centrist, and what distinguishes them.
We also talk about how the private sector is far better at adapting to changes in demand than the public sector and how the current Covid19 crisis has shown government run institutions to be very slow to react.
