Theresa May’s vision of a radical British conservatism

Steven Davidoff Solomon writes for The New York Times, July 19, 2016

The changes she outlined, in tying corporations more closely to the state, represent a significant shift from the generally laissez-faire positions the Conservatives have held since the Thatcher revolution of the 1980s. Ms. May’s proposal has the potential to be equally revolutionary: a call to rethink not just the supervision of the corporation but the state’s relationship to the corporation.
