Caring for others, paying taxes and benefiting from public services are a major part of what binds us together as a society. Drawing on evidence and examples from around the world for her new book What We Owe Each Other: A New Social Contract for a Better Society, director of the London School of Economics Dame Minouche Shafik shows how every country can provide citizens with the basics to have a decent life and be able to contribute to society.
