After the defeat of Labour in the UK: can the communautarian Blue Labour renew the party ? | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“In the aftermath of the global economic crisis, and the worst recession for over seventy years, Britain has witnessed one of the most turbulent eras in politics since the Second World War. The dominant political and capitalistic system has come under close scrutiny; and the 2008 financial crash and urban riots of 2011 have cast serious doubt on the economic and social liberalism of both Thatcherism and Blairism.

Neoliberals are killing us: The TED talk, techno-utopian, Thomas Friedman-economy is a lie

Neoliberals are killing us: The TED talk, techno-utopian, Thomas Friedman-economy is a lie | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The new economy favors forms of ownership and production that foster democracy and collaboration. You may recall George W.
