For over a decade Will Hutton has been one of Britain's leading progressive voices. He has been at the centre of every significant economic and political debate that has reshaped and reimagined the British centre-left: the mounting calls for a democratic constitutional settlement, the criticisms of the short-termism of the domestic and international financial systems, the idea of a stakeholding society. In The State We're In he combined all three in a passionate and powerful diagnosis of Britain's problems and the possibility of a just and democratic renewal. This collection brings together the full range of Hutton's work as a journalist, pamphleteer and essayist, advocate and critic, and shows the spectrum of issues with which he has engaged. Yet Hutton has remained true to his best journalistic instincts. He has proved to be not only an acute thinker but an engaged writer and effective popularizer. Brought together, his work over the last ten years represents the emergence of a new politics and new political imagination in Britain. Founded on a coherent critique of neo-liberal economic orthodoxy and monetarist practice, and a sophisticated reassessment of neo-Keynesianism, Hutton has put the politics back into political economy. The case he makes for new economic institutions, the regulation of global capital markets, the refounding of British industry, has always been matched by the complementary requirements of a new politics which is consensual, democratic, open and innovative and which must be pursued as much in Brussels and the regions and nations of the UK as at Westminster.

In Stakeholding and New Labour , Rajiv Prabhakar examines two core claims. Firstly, that stakeholding furnishes the centre-left with a set of 'Third Way' principles of public policy that differ from those previously deployed by the Labour and Conservative parties. Secondly, Prabhakar contends that while explicit references to stakeholding have been scaled down by New Labour, the concept remains important for understanding the ideology and the policies of New Labour in government.

This book synthesizes a core economic strategy from the most significant Third Way administrations. It explores the theoretical foundations to Third Way Economics , before evaluating its economic strategy against conclusions drawn from contemporary economics literature and the relative performance of contemporary left-of-centre governments. It additionally contrasts Third Way Economics with more traditional social democratic economic policy in adapting to the challenges posed by today's economy.

For both public and private managers, the book Optimization Methods for a Stakeholder Society is today's key to answer the problem of a sustainable development world. This world has to take into account the meaning of all stakeholders involved and has to reconcile a number of objectives, such as economic growth, employment and preservation of the ecosystem. Traditional methods, such as cost-benefit, are outmoded as they translate all these objectives into monetary costs, a materialistic approach. On the contrary, objectives have rather to stick to their own units, eventually indicators.
