Wrong Turnings

Geoffrey M. Hodgson

University of Chicago Press

This chapter concludes the book by outlining a policy agenda for a New Old Left. There are foremost emphases on the problem of inequality and on the survival of democracy in a complex world. Possible measures to deal with inequality include the enhancement of educational provision, a guaranteed basic income, and a politically viable mechanism for a substantial redistribution of wealth. I emphasize a gradual and experimental approach, which I describe as evotopian. I modernise the classic French revolutionary slogan, to ‘liberty, equality, democracy and solidarity’.

Keywords:   New Old Left, equality, democracy, liberty, solidarity, redistribution of wealth, basic income
