The Book Review: How stagnant charity threatens democracy
Britain is defined by the personal generosity of our predecessors as much as by the state. But with demands on the voluntary sector growing and charitable giving stagnating, is our very way of life as a liberal democracy at risk? John Nickson is one of the country's most experienced fundraisers. In his new book 'Our Common Good: If the State Provides Less, Who Will Provide More?', he argues that there could be catastrophic effects on our democracy unless we commit to creating the social, cultural and intellectual capital we need to sustain society and our economy. He joins Simon Rose in the studio.
