Plan C - social liberal approaches to a fair, sustainable economy Kindle Edition

Added to this is the Social Liberal Forum's further foray into economic policy-making, following up on some of their successful events with their first policy pamphlet. Prateek Buch's "Plan C - social liberal approaches to a fair, sustainable economy" tries to do just what it says in the title, and impressively includes a foreword by Will Hutton.
That foreword sets out a liberal challenge to improve capitalism - making it better by making it more liberal and, in particular, attacking concentrations of power. As with Capitalism as if the World Matters from a green perspective, Hutton wants a better capitalism, not socialism or communism.
None of the individual policies listed are particularly new for Liberal Democrats - having not just a Green Investment Bank but a National Investment Bank, expanding the Youth Contract, increased workplace democracy and so on all have been the meat and drink (or lentils and fruit juice) of party conferences for years.
The pamphlet's strength is not in producing reams of new policy, but in pulling together many different ideas into a few clear strands: job creation, a fair and efficient financial system and making workplaces more liberal through greater workplace democracy and fair conditions of work.Read more ›
