An Open Economy – the Progressive Response to Global Change

LSE Department of Management Business in the Global Age lecture series

Britain has long realised the best way to progress is to look outward rather than retreat inwards. In previous centuries, progressives responded to great social and economic change by moving to create an open society. In this lecture, Business and Enterprise Secretary, John Hutton will argue that the right progressive response to the scale and pace of global change facing Britain this century is to break down the remaining barriers that can hold people back by creating a truly open economy.

John Hutton was appointed secretary of state for the department for business, enterprise and regulatory reform in June 2007.
