On Friday, April 29, the architect of the modern rise of Britain’s Conservative Party, former senior political adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron, and author of More Human: Designing a World Where People Come First, Steve Hilton joined Arthur Herman for a discussion of the 2016 election and the moral imperative of decentralizing government and business described in his book.
Dissatisfied voters, prominent in this election cycle, feel angry and let down by both their leaders and the institutions that dominate their lives from corporations to political parties and government. Yet the cause of this malaise, according to political-advisor-turned-tech-CEO Steve Hilton, is not being addressed by politicians on the left or the right.
Hilton argues that much of our daily experience—our food production system, government, economy, healthcare system, and more—has become too big, too bureaucratic, and too distant from the human scale. More Human sets an agenda for rethinking and redesigning the outdated systems and structures of our politics, government, economy, and society to make them more suited to the way we want to live our lives today.
