Plan B: a good economy for a good society

Howard Reed, Neal Lawson

Plan B is our vision of an alternative political economy. It includes short term emergency measures like reversing public spending 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 economic foundations for the good society. It 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.
