Abstract

We are beginning to understand the consequences of geopolitics for the economy. We have a much fuzzier understanding of the consequences for political decision making. As policy makers look to understand how best to take decisions over complex problems, they are discovering that market-based solutions don’t work very well. Equally, falling back into Cold War patterns of emphasizing national security over economics is likely to have its own pitfalls. So how can we change government to allow it handle these complex problems better?
