The future of the left since 1884

Everyday Socialism: How to rebuild Britain

Good jobs, responsible employers and prosperous communities are the foundation of a thriving economy. How can we ensure that they are available to everyone, no matter where they live?


What needs to change to strengthen the jobs and sectors that provide the economic foundations in every community?

This collection explores how to decentralise and redistribute power and wealth within our changing economy. In it, a diverse range of thinkers make the case for reforms to build a stronger everyday economy, in everything from the food we eat to the energy we use. We need a new political settlement to create national prosperity and win the consent of the whole country. Everyday Socialism sets out the first steps in a programme of economic renewal which can speak to people’s real concerns and improve their daily lives.

Edited by Rachel Reeves MP, with contributions from Grace Blakeley, Aditya Chakrabortty, Steve Francis, Julie Froud, Lisa Nandy MP, Andy Pike, Angela Rayner MP, Tim Roache, John Tomaney, Karel Williams and Bryony Worthington.
