Intellectualising the World Cup, no.6

I’ve not been able to write as many entries in this series as I’d have liked or as there is material for. Nevertheless, I’m soldiering on with this one from that intellectual powerhouse, Prospect magazine:

In the post mortems that are to come, whether we are talking about football or about the state of the nation, we are going to have ask ourselves how and why or free-market, high-wage, globalised industries are so phenomenally successful at enriching themselves, but cannot seem to be mobilised to deliver public goods.

That’s exactly the question we’re going to ask.
