Cohen’s warning over social problems

Private equity veteran Sir Ronald Cohen, now an adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron, has claimed that British society is in crisis. Cohen, who is helping to set up the Big Society Bank, told the BVCA: “Despite the news around financial markets and capital markets there are some even more fundamental issues. It is not just our economy that is in crisis, it is our society." He also told investors to harness the power of social enterprise and capital markets to create social value.
