An Economic Policy for Labour
This article is written on certain assumptions. Explicitly these are that Labour comes to power in the latter half of 1964, and that it does not before the election add significantly to the sketch of its economic programme in Signposts for the Sixties and in recent speeches by Harold Wilson. The object of the article is to explain as realistically as possible what sort of an economy, and economic situation, Labour will inherit. Beyond that it attempts from the left, from a socialist position, to argue what the Labour government should be trying to achieve, what sort of measures and control techniques this would imply, and what problems would be likely to be encountered en route.
