The neoliberalism that has dominated economic thinking since Mrs Thatcher and Ronald Reagan first came to power is now seen to have serious flaws, and `Progressive Capitalism' seeks to replace it with a new, Progressive political economy. Progressive Capitalism shows how this new, Progressive political economy can be used by politicians and policymakers to produce a programme of economic reform for a country. It does this by analysing and proposing reforms for the UK's equity markets, its system of corporate governance, its national system of innovation and its education and training system.

Reviews

'David Sainsbury's thoughtful manifesto for a Progressive capitalism draws on his experience in both business and government to offer an alternative political economy to that of the dominant, and dominating, neo-liberalism of recent decades.' Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist 'Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the new model of capitalism evolving from the global financial crisis. An inspiration for politicians and business leaders who need to reinvent the mixed economy for the twenty-first century.' Anatole Kaletsky, author of Capitalism 4.0 and Chairman of the Institute for New Economic Thinking 'David Sainsbury offers a fresh, honest and compelling prescription for reforming capitalism. It is a must-read for Progressive politicians and policy-makers.' Andrew Adonis, former Transport Secretary and Education Minister 'Rich in detail, Outlines a "new" capitalism with its sharper teeth blunted, avarice expunged, fairness and social justice imprinted on its soul and innovation and entrepreneurship providing the rocket fuel' The Observer 'This book is equally important for what it says and who is saying it - A powerful and cogent critique - A must-read for anyone seeking to make sense of that new catchphrase "active industrial policy." - Goes way beyond the 2012 Kay review of equity markets and long-term decision-making - A decade ago, this prospectus would have seen its author branded "Red Sainsbury". Now it is pretty sensible and mainstream. A new centre ground is being forged.' New Statesman '[A] superbly constructed manifesto.'Cambridge Business Review
