For Malhotra, work is the ladder that leads to personal prosperity, a bridge between social and economic flourishing. But with people changing jobs on average seven times during their working life, how can we offer a stable environment for people’s personal development? Community and family values play a major role as does creating a savings culture including access to sound financial advice.

Malhotra emphasised that there is an alternative to the smaller state philosophy, focusing on a strategic state partnership delivering effectively for the benefit of everyone.

The discussion was moderated by Sian Hansen, Executive Director at the Legatum Institute.
