Just when ‘the market’ nearly took over all areas of life, the credit and climate crunches came along, challenging us to rebuild a society that works well for all of us. In his timely book, Common Wealth, Martin Large examines how we can build a freer, equal, mutual and sustainable society.
Martin says that most of us do not want a ‘market state’ that turns public services into business, uses relentless surveillance, damages the planet and puts banks before people. He shows instead that a tri-polar society is emerging where, as an alternative, citizens, government and business push back the market, working in partnership for the common good.
