The Just Society: A Manifesto for Labour.pdf


The Just Society presents a series of essays that offer a bold prescriptive for the next Labour government predicated on a combative argument for economic and social change in British society. Advances an argument for regulating a 21st-century market economy and ordering market outcomes based upon ethical socialist principles Offers a direct challenge to the Coalition's politics of austerity and outlines specific policy proposals for demand-led, long-term economic growth Critiques Localism and the 'Big Society' as little more than a contemporary form of neo-liberalism designed to jettison the Labour-built social democratic state Argues for the necessity of the social democratic state to provide essential public goods and services which endow British citizens with freedom and security Outlines a series of radical proposals on taxation, social services, civil liberties, the environment, Britain's role in the world, and more
