In 2008, they told us not to 'politicise' the crash. We ended up with a decade of austerity. The coronavirus crisis will reshape the economy in profound ways – now is the time to make socialist arguments about how to respond, argues Grace Blakeley.
Today's budget exposes the truth about a decade of austerity – it wasn't an economic necessity but a political choice. Now the Left must seize the initiative on this new terrain where economics has been repoliticised, argues Grace Blakeley.
Today's coronavirus crash in the stock market is exposing the frailty of global capitalism – and with governments tapped out on quantitative easing, only significant public investment on the scale of a Green New Deal can prevent a slump.
Rishi Sunak's appointment was trumpeted as a break with Thatcherism - but his record of supporting tax cuts for the rich and corporations suggests he's straight out of the Tory mould.
Today's speech by Rebecca Long-Bailey in her hometown of Salford laid out a compelling vision of Labour’s path to power – and socialists should take note, argues Grace Blakeley.

Boris Johnson claims the bailout of Flybe is a sign that this Tory government is prepared to use state powers to help workers – but in reality, it shows how committed they are to corporate welfare.
This is not the time to abandon the socialist policies that would most improve lives in the very areas Labour lost. Instead, the task is to build a more effective movement that can win them.
Forty years after Thatcher rose to power, the parts of Britain she decimated with deindustrialisation, privatisation and cuts have the opportunity in this election to bury her legacy once and for all.
Labour's plans to invest in a million green jobs can transform the very parts of Britain decimated by Thatcher's economic reforms - and begin to undo the damage of deindustrialisation.
Successive Tory governments have starved Britain of investment, leaving its infrastructure to crumble. It's time to elect a government with a bold plan to rebuild the country.
Capitalism is dying — but it’s up to us to build a system that can replace it, argues Grace Blakeley.
Under capitalist globalisation, Western states and corporations continue to plunder the Global South. Any movement for social justice must break that cycle.
The Left must meet this moment in history with a bold plan to remake our economy — or someone else will.
International speculators are playing games with our housing market — and we’re the ones losing.
