Economic Crisis

BRITAIN’S BROKEN ECONOMY – AND HOW TO MEND IT

The New Political Economy Network

FREE TO DOWNLOAD

There is no cast-iron law that states that crises of capitalism end in victories for the left – and certainly not in Britain. And yet this is not a Conservative moment – it is clear that the Coalition has no viable plan for rebuilding the economy. The problem is that Labour does not have one either. The task for Labour now is to come up with a vision of a moral economy based on decent jobs, good homes, stable pensions and fair finance. This e-book is the story of how Labour might begin to do this.

Foreword by Larry Elliott
Afterword by Jon Cruddas MP

The following contributed to the e-book:
Aditya Chakrabortty, Tom Clark, Ismail Eturk, Julie Froud, Sukhdev Johal, Stewart Lansley, Adam Leaver, Toby Lloyd, Mick Moran, Richard Murphy, Howard Reed, Jonathan Rutherford, Duncan Weldon, Karel Williams
