A new report Forging a Good Local Society: Tackling Poverty through a Local Economic Reset, makes the case for tackling poverty locally. Written by Neil McInroy and published by the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES), the report notes that local identities and innovation are increasingly viewed as an antidote to remote and detached national policies. It stresses that the local state and local government is well placed to harness an empathy and innovate in relationships with loal commercial and social partners. And it puts forward an agenda for a good local society including: building local assets and ownership; developing local skills and employment strategies; and wealth and supply chains – locking in wealth for local people.
