Abstract

One of the innovations touted by the Conservatives ‘Big Society’ plans is for mutualisation, where public services are provided by worker-owned enterprises. However, in this model both service users and funders are excluded. Ahead of the LSE conference ‘The Big Society and the Good Society’ next week, Maurice Glasman builds on Labour’s ‘Good Society’ concept with his ‘Blue Labour’ policy; where the governance of new public and private mutuals will involve the workforce, service users, and local authorities or the state.
