There are huge opportunities for Britain in a world where the global middle class is expected to treble to five billion people in the next two decades. This text brings together leading experts, business leaders, entrepreneurs and politicians with ideas for how Britain can thrive in this context, building an inclusive and broad-based economy. Contributions focus on the changing global context and discuss how government can work with business to generate more balanced and sustainable growth. This discussion focuses on how Britain should prepare for success with the BRIC and MINT economies; the challenge of inclusive growth; how to generate success that enables all to contribute and to achieve their aspirations; the innovation imperative; what Britain must do to remain at the forefront of technological innovation; and re-imagining industrial strategy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[Chuka Umunna] has gathered an impressive collection of business figures to contribute to this study of how globalisation and technology can go hand in hand with fairness. * The Daily Telegraph, 8/18/2014 *
Umunna's introduction alone is well worth five minutes of your time. It offers a brisk but detailed overview of the deep structural challenges facing the British economy and the uncertainty they are creating for most people. The clarity and depth of his analysis - from the hollowing out of the middle class, to the challenge of increasing our productivity - is certainly impressive. * Progress, 8/19/2014 *
