Dr Angela Cummine’s research cited in Guardian article on economic ideas for the Climate Change era

Angela Cummine’s model for citizen wealth funds, featured in her book Citizens’ Wealth, is one of many ideas cited by George Monbiot in an article for The Guardian (11 October) entitled ‘How Labour could lead the global economy out of the 20th century’.

Monbiot writes, “The rents accruing to commons trusts could be used to create a local version of the citizens’ wealth funds (modelled on the sovereign wealth funds in Alaska and Norway) proposed by Angela Cummine and Stewart Lansley. The gain from such funds could be distributed in the form of a local basic income.”
