Simon Deane-Johns AKA ''The Pragmatist'' and author of the recently published - Lipstick on a Pig
, as part of a mid winter penance has taken it upon himself to review two recent accounts of government, society and economic policy.
As an entrepreneur, lawyer, and thinker whose own work focuses on how the relationship between individuals, society and institutions is changing, fundamentally and forever, Simon is obsessed with how we, as individuals, are personalising the one-size-fits-all existence traditionally offered by our institutions; and what the impact of this trend will be on our financial system, politics, unions, the church and beyond. (I'm really sorry about the length of that last sentence).
Here he discusses the 'beyond'. Also known as government.
