There's a new movement sweeping England, coming in from Canada. It's called 'Living the New Economy'. But what's so 'new' about these ideas? Jane and Mike have come across them before. Firstly, while living in Fallowfield, Manchester, and struggling to bring up young children. They found they couldn't manage without the help and support of their neighbours. Then, when they moved to Salford, they found that this way of life had been taken for granted over the last few generations. Money was tight and work uncertain; the people of Inner City Salford had to find ways to cope, and that meant helping each other. In some ways, they had invented the 'sharing economy' on their own, building on traditions of close-knit families and neighbourliness. Jane and Mike heard these stories when recording contributions for their weekly show on Salford City Radio. In this book they discuss what they've learned and think about what life could be like in a world that takes such things seriously.
