Here is a revised and extended version of a paper posted here last May: Getting Started on the Economy. More work needs doing on it but it
- presents the problem for the regional economy in terms of two flawed assumptions endless growth and global competitiveness;
- suggests some alternative guiding principles;
- suggests some ways in which we can promote them.
Do comment so we can develop the thinking here. Updated September 2010.
This is work in progress – feedback, critical rather than adulatory (though that’s nice), is really needed!
