Britain needs an industrial house-building revolution to tackle housing market failure
We need to self-determine success through excellent execution, not blame our failures on others.
The world is moving from uncertainty to instability. Economic, political and social “flashpoints” include the United States, EU, China, North Korea and the Middle East. While the UK has sensible economic goals – 2.5 per cent growth, 2 per cent inflation, £1 trillion of exports by 2020 and improved public finances – progress is mixed. We need to self-determine success through excellent execution, not blame our failures on others.
The failure of our airport strategy is a failure of self-determination, but regenerating and devolving power to our great cities and building 250,000 homes a year are outcomes we can successfully self-determine.
