Reasons to be Cheerful with Ed Miliband and Geoff Lloyd


191. PRESTONOMICS: taking back control of local economies

Season 1, Ep. 191

Hello! For the last few years, Preston has been pioneering a bold experiment in how to create a fairer local economy. What can we learn from their ‘community wealth building’ approach? Preston City Council leader Matthew Brown is back to tell us about how the Preston model is taking shape. Tony Greenham from South West Mutual explains how a new generation of regional banks can support the agenda. And Antonia Jennings from the Centre for Local Economic Strategies talks us through what’s going on across the country.

Plus we chat to the wonderful Sue Peachey, star of new documentary ‘The People vs Climate Change’.
