This manifesto makes practical sense of green necessity, turning housing need and decarbonisation into an industrial strategy with a million good jobs.
A million good jobs is a million costs of the strategy, not a benefit of it.
If we’re not getting you to understand that then it’s difficult to have a chat about economics…..
The two Harolds, first Macmillan then Wilson, both reached more than 300,000 new homes a year, many of which were council-owned, in an era when the country was by many multiples less wealthy – but paid higher taxes.
Tax as a percentage of GDP – the only useful measure – wasn’t higher back then. Sigh.
