Ideas:
“  I'm writing a book on the governance of enterprise, including all those which cross into the public and regulated sphere: universities, health care, energy, transport, communications and media. The goal is to understand how our voice as citizens in the economy is expressed through law, and what we need to do to complete the democratisation of society in the 21st century.  ”
