An Economy That Works: Policy Report

An Economy That Works is an alliance of organisations from across the economy whose fundamental belief is that a successful economy needs to deliver High Employment; Equality of Opportunity; Wellbeing. Furthermore, it needs to be Low-carbon; Nature Enhancing; and produce Zero Waste.

In order to ensure that we achieve an economy that works and to know that we are heading in the right direction, it is critical that there are clear headline indicators in place to measure progress along the key characteristics of An Economy That Works (AETW), in addition to GDP growth. There is a need to define clear headline indicators, to integrate these (further) into policy making, and to increase government accountability for these indicators.
