Hanging in the balance: the democratic economy after Corbyn

Joe Guinan and Sarah McKinley | Renewal 28/1

Under Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell, a space was created for left thinkers and activists to advance a detailed and intellectually coherent alternative to our plutocratic, extractive and environmentally devastating economic model. After Labour’s defeat, we need to hold our nerve and build a broader, more durable movement for radical change.

Joe Guinan is a Renewal contributing editor, Vice President of The Democracy Collaborative, and co-author (with Christine Berry) of People Get Ready! Preparing for a Corbyn Government (2019), and (with Martin O’Neill) of The Case for Community Wealth Building (2019).

Sarah McKinley is Director of European Programs for The Democracy Collaborative and European Representative for the Next System Project. She works to build transatlantic partnerships around new community wealth building models and learning exchanges to advance the democratic economy.
