New Report: Plan B
As reported in the Observer our new report, Plan B; a good economy for a good society has been launched with the support of 100 economists. Plan B is our vision of an alternative political economy that includes short term emergency measures like reversing cuts to get the economy moving again, directing quantitative easing to a Green New Deal and creating a British Investment Bank to leverage investment in low carbon sectors such as housing, transport and renewable energy.
Plan B is also about laying the long term economic foundations for the good society. The report has an emphasis on the ‘core economy’ of families and outlines policies for a rebalancing of time spent working and ‘living’. It also argues that we should be moving beyond viewing ‘GDP’ as the sole measure of economic success.
