The Economic Crisis

In the light of the credit crunch and the global economic downturn, I agree with the Government that the focus needs to be on getting the economy moving again by preventing a major banking collapse and stumulating the flow of credit.

However, I think it is also important to recognise that, despite the obvious negative impact on millions of people, the crisis should be taken as an opportunity to create a fairer, more equal, more sustainable and more green economic system.

As such, I will be detailing on this page the work that I am doing to encourage such a shift in thinking and action.
