Prospect has acquired a reputation as the most intelligent magazine of current affairs and cultural debate in Britain. Both challenging and entertaining, the magazine seeks to make complex ideas accessible and enjoyable by commissioning the best writers, editing them vigorously and packaging their work in a well designed and illustrated magazine.

Latest Issue

In Prospect’s March issue: Prospect’s editor Tom Clark and commissioning editor Alex Dean explore how Britain’s courts have becoming increasingly involved in politics. Now, with Boris Johnson planning to bring them down a peg or two, we ask whether the judiciary has overplayed its hand.



Elsewhere in the issue: Economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton argue that the primary measure of economic inequality, the Gini coefficient, is preventing us from have a proper discussion about its causes. Philip Oltermann profiles German Chancellor Angela Merkel as she prepares to step aside after 15 years in power. Also, Andrew Dickson asks if architecture can solve the climate crisis and Philip Ball discovers if AI could replicate the human brain





Judges in the dock; putting the Gini back in the bottle; who was Angela Merkel?
