Alternatives to Neoliberalism

Anna Coote

Policy Press

Anna Coote’s recommendations cover three overlapping areas: social justice; environmental sustainability and a more equal distribution of power. A key unifying theme is that the distribution and care of resources should be directed towards the needs and potential of all members of society and not, as is currently the case, disproportionately to the few. To pursue this equality people should ‘be able to influence and control decisions that affect their everyday lives’. In several key, participatory, egalitarian and environmentally –sustainable respects, Coote’s proposition for a society-wide ‘social settlement’ resembles the systemic changes advocated by Ted Benton’s Red-Green programme, in chapter 3.
