What does society owe each of us? And what do we owe in return?Our answer to these inescapable questions – known as the social contract – shapes our politics, economic systems and every stage of life, from raising children and going to school to finding work and growing old. Yet today, many believe that this contract is not working for them. Economist Minouche Shafik examines societies across the world and demonstrates that the urgent challenges of technology, demography and climate require a major shift in priorities.
This vision-changing book shows us the way to a new model that provides mutual security and opportunity – a social contract fit for the twenty-first century.
