Here is a revised and extended version of a paper posted here in 2009 : Getting Started on the Economy. This represents work in progress in 2010. For a much more comprehensive body of work, see steadystatemanchester.net. However, this paper:
- 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.
