Carney’s deeply researched, thoughtful and forward-looking manifesto goes to the heart of what we’ve got wrong in the past and offers achievable action plans to rebuild an inclusive social contact for individuals, businesses and governments and a more resilient and sustainable world for our children, grandchildren and generations to come.
