The Progressive Economy project, which is an initiative supported by the Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament (who gave funded work I have undertaken) have issued a new 'Call for Change' endorsed by a group of eminent academics.
I have not read it all as yet, but I felt this paragraph from the introduction more than worthy of being shared:
Europe needs to stand for sustainable growth, quality jobs, fairly shared prosperity and an equal opportunity for all children, regardless of nationality, inspired by a new egalitarian ideal. Today, it stands for none of these.
It is time for change.
