March 2017, 6:45pm start

Dave Clements will introduce a discussion on why there is such a focus on regulating incomes today

Battle of Ideas 2017Battle of Ideas

Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 October

The Battle of Ideas festival, currently being held at the Barbican in London, was initiated by the Institute of Ideas 12 years ago to encourage free thinking and open-ended public discussion, and is supported by a wide range of partners. The Battle of Ideas festival comprises 400 speakers at 75 debates and satellite discussions confronting society’s big issues and unresolved questions. It affords the opportunity for some clear thinking, rational debate and agenda-setting - above all, it's future-orientated, whilst retaining a healthy regard for the past achievements of humanity.


Inspired by the Institute of Ideas, the Manchester Salon will hopefully be organising a couple of satellite events as part of this year's Battle of Ideas.
