The Strategy: http://www.neweconomics.org/sites/neweconomics.org/files/Great_Transition_0.pdf

The Great Transition - the Great Revaluing - make good things cheap and bad things expensive. Building social and environmental value should be the central goal of policy-making; the Great Redistribution - redistribution of both income and wealth would create value as resources are moved from those who do not need them to those who do. Goal to share working hours and tasks more equally. Foster a redistribution of ownership to create a form of ‘economic democracy’, where company shares are progressively transferred to employees in a resurgence of mutual and co-operative ownership forms. Great Rebalancing - markets but where pricing reflects true social and environmental costs and benefits, and a broader definition of “public goods” Great Localisation moving real power away from the centre to devolved “democratic” (stakeholder) bodies. Great Reskilling returning to appropriate scale for agriculture, manufacturing and the arts. Great Economic Irrigation taxing environmental and social ‘bads’ such as pollution, consumption and short-term speculation. consumption taxes reflecting the social and environmental costs of goods Great Interdependence wealth transfer to developing countries.
