In today's world of cultural climate change, Rabbi Lord Sacks argues that we have outsourced morality to the markets on the one hand, and to government on the other. If the market rewards it, it must be OK – unless the law says not to. Yet while the markets have brought wealth to many and the state has done much to contain the worst excesses of inequality, neither is capable of bearing the moral weight of showing us how to live. Combining his passionate belief in a positive way forward with a careful weighing of the realities and challenges facing us, Rabbi Lord Sacks sets out a clear picture of a world in which we can all find our place and build a future worth working for. A copy of Morality is included in the £20 ticket price (claim it on the night using your ticket) or alternatively will be available to purchase on the night for £15 (RRP £20).
