Invest to grow: a spending review to get Britain moving

By Joe Cox


This briefing outlines an alternative spending review – A Four Point Plan for Growth that would get the economy moving again through:

–           A £55 billion fiscal stimulus in green and social infrastructure spending

–          Tough fiscal rules with democratic fiscal oversight

–          Once recovery is assured, the elimination of the structural deficit through a series of progressive tax rises and cuts in wasteful public spending

–          A restructuring of public services to ensure sustained efficiency, responsiveness and innovation.
