Social Innovator series: Ways to design, develop and grow social innovation.
Robin Murray argues that the early years of the 21st century are witnessing the emergence of a new kind of social economy.
This pamphlet argues that the early years of the 21st century are witnessing the emergence of a new kind of economy that has profound implications for the future of public services as well as for the daily life of citizens.
This emerging economy can be seen in many fields, including the environment, care, education, welfare, food and energy. It combines some old elements and many new ones. Robin Murray describes it as a 'social economy' because it melds features which are very different from economies based on the production and consumption of commodities.
