Prosperity and justice: A plan for the new economy - Executive summary

Publication Briefing Economy Commission on Economic Justice IPPR
Topic: Economy

Building on the pioneering work of the landmark Commission for Economic Justice, IPPR is now launching a major new Centre for Economic Justice to continue the work of the commission. 

A fair economy is a strong economy: prosperity and justice can, and must, go hand-in-hand. But it is not sufficient to seek to redress injustices and inequalities simply by redistribution. They need to be tackled at source, in the structures of the economy in which they arise. Economic justice needs to be ‘hard-wired’ into the way the economy works.
