About this product
- DescriptionThe debate surrounding ecomic policy in the UK has recently been heavily focused on determining the appropriate response to the financial crisis and recession. There has been less discussion about the nature of the UK's political ecomy. Leaving the UK's model of political ecomy unchanged is, however, t an option in the modern global ecomy. The existing model has resulted in an unbalanced ecomy with relatively low productivity and a structural balance of payments deficit. Without reform, these problems will t go away and could worsen. A debate about what Britain's new ecomic model should look like is long overdue. This book-a collaboration between Policy Network and IPPR-aims to fill this gap and poses a series of challenging questions concerning the future of the British ecomy: *What are the key principles upon which a progressive political ecomy in the UK should be based? *How can government institutions and the role of the state be reformed to ensure they keep pace with a fast-changing ecomy? *What can be done to address the market distribution of incomes and assets in order to reduce inequality? *How can the government better support invation-led growth? *How can businesses be encouraged to engage in and support a new model of capitalism that will require significant changes in the way they behave? The answers to these questions form a significant contribution to the debates about progressive capitalism and inclusive prosperity and set out a way forward for a new political ecomy in Britain.
