About the Progressive Economy Forum (PEF)
The Progressive Economy Forum (PEF) brings together a Council of eminent economists and academics to launch a new macroeconomic programme. It seeks to develop and advocate progressive economic policy ideas, and to improve public understanding of key economic issues.
PEF is guided by the following principles:
- Economically informed citizens are essential to effective policy-making in a democratic society.
- A strong public sector that provides essential social services, such as health, education, transport and housing, is the foundation of a fair society.
- Active macroeconomic management, fully accountable to citizens, is key to achieving an equitable, dynamic and sustainable economy.
