“A fair economy is a strong economy: prosperity and justice can, and must, go hand-in-hand.”
As part of our series exploring the welfare state, we welcome Tom Kibasi, who is Director of the Institute for Public Policy Research, Chair of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice and a principal author and editor of the Commission’s final report, ‘Prosperity and Justice: A Plan for the New Economypublished in September 2018. The report has been praised as a ‘Beveridge Report for the economy’.
Under Tom’s leadership, IPPR has had significant impact in areas ranging from the real choices on Brexit, recasting the relationship between tech and society, and the funding and reform of the health and care system. Prior to joining IPPR, Tom spent more than a decade at McKinsey and Company, where he was a partner and held leadership roles in the healthcare practice in both London and New York.
Tom helped with healthcare reform across a dozen countries in five continents and served international institutions, such as the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, and international foundations including the Rockefeller Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Tom will be in dialogue with the Revd Dr Charles Clapham, vicar of St Peter’s Church, who holds degrees in modern economic history as well as theology, and wrote a PhD on the dialogue between theology and economics in contemporary Christian social theory.
