About The Radical Read Project
The A Radical Project has a broad mandate. We will consider books for publication on a broad range of subjects that advance widely different solutions. We only ask they accept the following underlining values.
- Economic and social problems can never be overcome until the growing gap between the rich and the poor is halted and then reversed.
- That even if the concept of a mixed is economy is accepted, the balance has been dangerously distorted. The intrusion into activities that rightly belong to the public sector by aggressive profit hungry organisations has proved disastrous. This is only too evident in the provision of natural resources, transport and in the field of education and health.
- The role of the private sector is to create new and tangible wealth. There is no place for those whose personal prosperity is founded on financial manipulation. Within the private sector there is an important role for cooperative and mutually owned organisations and their progress must be encouraged.
- All wealth is created by human labour; yet those who work are having less and less control over their terms and conditions of employment. While legislation has a role in protecting employees' interests, the most effective way is by an orderly system of free collective bargaining.
