BOOKSHOP BARNIE: Robert Skidelsky on How Much is Enough? The Love of Money, and the Case for the Good Life

Monday 30th July 2012 6pm - 7pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

Bookshop Barnie logo In this next instalment of the ever-popular Bookshop Barnie, we ask is there anything wrong with the desire to be wealthy? Over the years, economic growth has often been regarded as a self-evident good and in his new book How Much is Enough? Robert Skidelsky, professor of political economy, politician and writer, argues that wealth is not an end in itself but a means to the achievement and maintenance of a 'good life'. Join host Austin Williams tonight in a lively encounter with Robert.
