What is the economy?
There are many different definitions. But here at Economy we define ‘the economy’ as the complex systems organising the production, distribution and consumption of resources (such as money, jobs, housing and food) in a geographical area. These systems are embedded in and dependent on the environment and can and should be organised through participatory and deliberative democracy.
Economic systems – at a local, national and global level – are currently not working for everyone in society. There is widespread agreement across the political spectrum that we need to ‘build back better’ and Economy supports this call. Why not join the conversation and get involved?
