In Conversation: Niall Ferguson and George Osborne


This Tuesday, the Centre for Policy Studies, CapX’s parent organisation, hosted its annual Margaret Thatcher Conference at the Guildhall in London. This year’s theme was Britain and America, and the day was jam-packed with of insightful speeches and thought-provoking panel discussions. One of the highlights was a conversation between Evening Standard Editor and former Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne and the historian Professor Niall Ferguson, chaired by CapX’s Editor-in-Chief Robert Colvile.

It was a wide-ranging conversation that dealt with everything from the future of the special relationship to the geopolitical consequences of the resurgence of China — and it’s now up on YouTube for everyone to enjoy.
