.@keir_starmer is right that the success of the economy should be judged on whether it puts money in peopleโ€™s pockets, revitalises places that have been held back, ends insecure work, and drives up wages.

But pursuing economic growth through the same tired old policies will not be enough. The lesson of the last decade is that growth alone is not enough to lift everyone. There are millions more struggling to make ends meet now than there were 10 years ago.

A #NewEconomy needs to truly be new. We need a major shift in policy to get the economy working for the many and not just the few. 5 key strands:

This list is not comprehensive & I undoubtedly missed a few amazing stories/deals so feel free to add them! What is clear is that our community's economic strategy is the right one to rebuild & futureproof #YYC's economy. I wouldn't have championed it if I didn't believe in it. Image
The list is mapped to the 4 pillars of the strategy (Innovation, Talent, Place, & Business Environment) & our established (Transportation & Logistics, Agribusiness, Energy) & emerging industry clusters (Life Sciences, Financial/Professional Services, and Creative Industries). ImageImage

"In the old economy of price signals, you tried to build a product that people would want, and the way you knew it worked is that people would pay you more than it cost. You were adding value to the world, and you could tell because you made money." (1)
"In the new economy of user growth, you donโ€™t have to worry about making a product that people want because you can just pay them to use it." (2)
"So you might end up with companies losing money to give people things that they donโ€™t want and driving out the things they do want." (3) via Bloomberg Opinion

Today we are going to play a game. The game is called "Which is more valuable". This is not a parody. This was published as an interactive game on BBC in 2015. It's demonstrating how markets can (& will) value the natural world.

Let's play.

If you said "acre of oyster reef" - you were right.

Next question...

Which is more valuable?

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Letโ€™s see who is #campaigning for whatโ€ฆIn #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spainโ€™s leftist #Podemos isnโ€™t likely to break bread with #Italyโ€™s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.
