This is a vision for a country that combines strong public services with a free market economy. It is a system that we know works because its been tried and tested in the Nordic countries. This has meant simplifying systems such as social security, how many layers of government we have and our overly complex tax system. We also learnt from them in areas where individual countries have become world leaders. In creating a free market economy that works we have looked to countries such as Sweden and reforming our education system has been based off Finland which has one of the best education systems in the world. This paper includes that:

  • We support free markets including simplifying regulations and taxation.
  • We also support strong public services including a comprehensive education system similar to Finland’s, a Norwegian style prison system and a housing first system like Finland uses.
