Consumer capitalism is unsustainable in environmental, social and even in financial terms. This chapter explores the ramifications of the combined crises now faced by the prevailing growth-based model of economics. It traces briefly the evolution of western notions of progress and in particular it critiques the very narrow view of human nature on which these notions were built. A wider and more realistic view of human nature allows us to recover more robust meanings of prosperity and to establish the foundations for a different kind of economy. The chapter explores these foundations. It pays a particular attention to the nature of enterprise, the quality of work, the structure of investment and the role of money. It develops the conceptual basis for social innovation in each of these areas, and provides empirical examples of such innovations. The aim is to demonstrate that the transition from an unsustainable consumerism to a sustainable prosperity is precise, meaningful, definable and pragmatic task.

This chapter considers how forensic pathology sits within the general domain of medical science and operates according to its own professional standards, regulatory mechanisms and cultural norms, which intersect with legal processes in distinctive ways. Having reviewed the discipline’s current institutional structure in England and Wales, and highlighted certain structural risks arising from these institutional arrangements, ‘critical trust’ is advocated as the best standard for regulating reliance on forensic pathology expert evidence and assessing its probative value. Pathologists draw on an exceptional width of disciplinary knowledge, indicating the desirability of greater professional autonomy in casework decision-making. Respect for informed professionalism is contrasted with the risks of excessive cultural deference, harking back to the days of celebrity medical witnesses personified by Sir Bernard Spilsbury. The chapter then presents two detailed ‘case studies’ of criminal appeal judgments in which forensic pathology evidence played a pivotal role. These cases exemplify in microcosm the potential for injustice when the reliability of pathology evidence is doubtful or misinterpreted. Reform options are canvassed.
