'It's the economy, stupid' has been the political truth for decades. But the vote for Brexit and wide support for Corbyn suggest that many would sacrifice growth for social change. Has the economy become less important to us? Are we turning to wider more socially radical political goals?  Or is the weakness of the economy since 2008 the very reason for the shift away from the centre ground?

Cabinet Minister and Chief Secretary to the Treasury Liz Truss and Labour politician and MP for Leeds East Richard Burgon contest the importance of growth and seek plausible alternative goals.
