People, planet, power: towards a new social settlement | New Economics Foundation

FEBRUARY 17, 2015 //WRITTEN BY: Anna Coote, Head of Social Policy

These are NEF’s proposals for a new social settlement – a framework for deciding how we live together, what we expect from our governments and what we want to achieve for ourselves and others.

The new social settlement has three goals: social justice, environmental sustainability, and a more equal distribution of power…

These goals lead to a set of objectives,

– Plan for prosperity without depending on economic growth.
– Shift investment and action upstream to prevent harm instead of just coping with the consequences.
– Value and strengthen the core economy of unpaid work, everyday wisdom and social connections on which all our lives depend.
– Foster solidarity, understanding just how much we depend on each other to achieve our goals.
