Jobs, industry and opportunity: Growth strategies after the crisisGovernments around the world must address wide-ranging policy challenges if they are to emerge from the recession and plot a path to sustainable long-term prosperity. The global financial crisis demanded emergency actions to stabilise the financial system and avert a 1930s style depression. Now that the immediate crisis has passed, the focus is shifting towards developing long-term strategies to shape our post-recession economies.

This is the challenge that the progressive centre-left has to take on. Not through backward looking debates or ideological introspection, but by mobilising the political and intellectual capital of the entire progressive community within and beyond our countries.

This selection of short articles, written by leading experts in the field, attempts to guide, inspire and, in particular, challenge some of the key issues at stake.
