Why No Turning Back?

This year's Compass conference is themed around building a new political and economic settlement for the 21st century. The freemarket economic consensus of the past three decades is crumbling around us. We live in changed times that demand radically different solutions. The neoliberal thinking that dominated the industrial world for nearly thirty years has led to a financial crisis which in turn caused the global downturn - and ideas that once threatened to be the preserve of a left-leaning minority now sit at the centre of worldwide debate. To talk about equality, fairness, the control of markets and environmental sustainability is now to reflect not just the aspirations but the objective interests of the mainstream.

The key purpose of the event will be to make the case that there can be No Turning Back to the failed ideas of the free market consensus.

With over 1000 in attendance this will be the No Turning Back event of the year, where a coalition for change will come together to discuss and debate the ideas, policies and campaigns needed to build the good society.
