Sovereign fund and land reform could secure UK's long-term future

Ubi's curator insight, January 15, 2017 7:28 PM
This Larry Elliott article develops some interesting ideas that just might help overcome the housing shortage and boost infrastructure investment.

I wonder whether they would either work or be politically palatable.
