What a Waste? is the latest in the Manchester Capitalism series of short books from MUP which aim to reframe the big issues of economic renewal, financial reform and political mobilisation. This launch event introduces the book through short presentations by CRESC researchers from MBS and Queen Mary about how government outsourcing goes wrong, why and what can be done. This is part of a larger argument about private corporations and the public interest which will be made by Kevin Farnsworth (University of York) whose authoritative work on corporate welfare has been cited by the new Labour leadership.
