Much to commend in #UK2070 work. Clearly a serious academic type regional planning orientated contribution to issues of regional inequality and what we need to do about it. Good stuff! However, whilst extensive, there are some serious omissions/lack of emphasis.
Few thoughts 1/6
💷Financialisation with wealth extraction? The great 'unleveller' of the UK economy. This is a hugely significant omission by #uk2070? Needed bravery here. It hasn't been.
🌳 #GreenNewDeal? Surely worthy of consideration as basis to industrial transformation/ rebalancing?
👨‍👩‍👦‍👦Local economies? Weak section. And no mention of #communitywealthbuilding(I declare an interest!). However, this is a key local economic approach adopted by dozens of areas and growing in anchor institutions (I.e #NHS)
👋Brexit. Barely mentioned.
