Re-Inventing Our Economy For People and the Planet:

thinking about alternative sustainable economic policy.

How can we make our economy deliver wellbeing and sustainability?

There’s a widespread view that it’s time to steer our economy in a new direction.

We see:

  • Growing inequality, high unemployment, growing in-work poverty.

  • Economic development drives climate change and resource depletion.

  • The threats of future crises in the financial system remain.

We don’t accept that this is inevitable just because the experts say ‘there is no alternative’. Instead we believe we should steer our economy onto a path which ensures wellbeing for all and care for the environment on which we depend.

We are asking economists and other thinkers to give their answers. Then we aim to build consensus about how we want our governments to manage our economy.

We need to take a bold, sustainable, alternative economic pathway.
