Product description

Review

David Sainsbury's thoughtful manifesto for a Progressive capitalism draws on his experience in both business and government to offer an alternative political economy to that of the dominant, and dominating, neo-liberalism of recent decades. --Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist

Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the new model of capitalism evolving from the global financial crisis. An inspiration for politicians and business leaders who need to reinvent the mixed economy for the twenty-first century. --Anatole Kaletsky, Author of Capitalism 4.0 and Chairman of the Institute for New Economic Thinking

David Sainsbury offers a fresh, honest and compelling prescription for reforming capitalism. It is a must-read for Progressive politicians and policy-makers. --Andrew Adonis, Former Transport Secretary and Education Minister

Rich in detail, fleshed out by the practical experience both men have had in a range of fields. --The Guardian

This book is equally important for what it says and who is saying it... A powerful and cogent critique... A must-read for anyone seeking to make sense of that new catchphrase "active industrial policy". ... Goes way beyond the 2012 Kay review of equity markets and long-term decision-making... A decade ago, this prospectus would have seen its author branded "Red Sainsbury". Now it is pretty sensible and mainstream. A new centre ground is being forged. --New Statesman

[A] superbly constructed manifesto. --Cambridge Business Review

Rich in detail... Outlines a "new" capitalism with its sharper teeth blunted, avarice expunged, fairness and social justice imprinted on its soul and innovation and entrepreneurship providing the rocket fuel. --The New Review, The Observer
