Making Progressive Politics Work
Author: Policy Network (eds)
Date:22 April 2014
As the slow return to growth begins to gather pace in western democracies, the danger is that insufficient attention has been given to structural economic weaknesses and long-term stresses on representational politics and governance.

Date:04 July 2013
For the last three decades annual percentage rises in executive pay for large FTSE companies in the UK have grown at a rate far outstripping those of both company growth and productivity rates while at the same time real wages have fallen for the majority of low and middle income earners.
