Chapter 6: Economic governance and social policy

Ian Greener


This chapter examines, using the framework constructed by the book, how economic policy has developed from the 1970s onwards. It explores how corporate dominance has come about, and what the implications of this are for social policy. It suggests that we must take closer account of how economic governance is conducted, especially in relation to the dominance of financial services, if we are to improve social policy. It shows that different models of economic governance are possible, but they involve rethinking our current priorities considerably.
