Deputy Prime Minister Wants Employees "in the driving seat" in Britain

A number of articles have appeared recently regarding the response of Deputy Prime Minister of Britain, Nick Clegg, to Graeme Nuttall’s examination of methods to promote employee ownership and spread the benefits of employee ownership to the wider economy.

It’s not enough to talk about a new kind of capitalism: more balanced, more sustainable, fairer. We need to roll up our sleeves and build it – and that is what today is about.
