The most important task facing Labour now is to come up with a vision of the economy that is different from what it was putting forward in the period before the crash.

Labour must now discard the snake oil of neo-classical economics and develop ideas for the economy that are both practical and humane - based on the principles of environmentally sustainable wealth creation, durability, cultural inventiveness, equality and human flourishing.

The New Political Economy Network is a non-aligned, centre-left initiative that brings together experts in economics and other disciplines, existing research projects, campaigning organisations, think tanks, journalists, activists and politicians. Its aim is to help build the intellectual foundations and shape the policy framework of this new economy.
