|Britain’s economy isn’t working properly anymore. In the wake of the 2008 banking crash, and in the face of new digital challenges and disruptive technologies, it simply isn’t delivering the goods. Wage growth has been anaemic for most of us, while a few have become extraordinarily rich. Too many of life’s basic, unavoidable essentials (like housing, energy, water or transport) either don’t work properly, or are so expensive they’re rip-offs. The system feels rigged; stacked against hardworking families by a complacent, comfortable, out-of-touch global elite.
