Part of the Wellbeing in Politics and Policy book series (WPP)


The chapter begins with an account of the current political and economic orthodoxy and its breakdown. It then moves on to the current left alternatives, and then to the new alternative that is the subject of the book: the politics of flourishing. This provides both ideal—a world in which people flourish—and analysis—there is a mass of evidence as to how to bring this world about. The chapter then summarises the account of change that the book contains, which it contrasts with the thin theories of change common on the left.
