A New Economic Consensus?

Add to calendar

Amid all the talk of splits and rivalries, a new consensus has been quietly forming between different wings of the Labour party - neoliberalism has divided and weakened British society. Could the road to recovery run through a decentralised, democratic economy, where revived local governments and worker-owned firms are supported by an active state with a national vision? This event brings together a broad range of politicians and thinkers to discuss their shared ambitions for a radical Labour government.
