If we are to make a plausible case for more public investment, we must show that that money will be spent effectively on services. But it is not just about competence: we must demonstrate that spending furthers social justice and is environmentally sustainable too.
In this pamphlet, John Tizard and David Walker make the case for fundamental reform of the way spending decisions are made and checked. They argue that Labour should recover and celebrate its strong tradition of innovation in the mechanics of effective spending.
