1. Five principles
- Plural ownership of the economy.
- Making financial power work for local places.
- Fair employment and just labour markets.
- Progressive procurement of goods and services.
- Socially productive use of land and property.
The problem is that although this offers a solution emphasising growth, and the potential for a more democratic model of ownership to emerge, there can be strong tendencies towards simple local protectionism. Leadership candidates speaking about localism must ensure it’s more than a simply a listening exercise and they should be looking forward for their solutions, not into the past.
