Message from a thoughtful Corbyn supporter: don't I realise that Corbyn just wants to make Britain more like social-market Germany? Britain should indeed become more like Germany, but Corbynism is a long way from how you'd do that.
3) You'd turn the Lords into a Senate of the regions, to ensure each region had a voice. And you'd apply PR to the Commons, to make the electoral system more open and responsive to a more diverse UK political economy.
4) You'd institutionalise worker-management cooperation in firms, create a network of local banks (preferably better regulated than their German counterparts) and seek to reduce the British private sector's reliance on equity finance.
5) You'd also incentivise: patient finance (encouraging long-term loans, discouraging early sales of stakes in promising firms); collaborative union-management relations; measures to get workers onto boards.
6) You'd invest in business-academia collaborations integrating British universities with applied science centres like Germany's Fraunhofer network (the UK's Catapults are shamefully under-developed), aiming to hit a 3%/GDP R&D spend.
7/7 In the long-term you'd rejoin the EU and probably join the Euro too; the better to sell goods and services to the continent, but also to make Britain the European hub for the boom continents of Asia and Africa.
Germany's economy minister @peteraltmaier responds to my thread, telling the UK: be yourself! He has a point: Britain will best succeed by honing its own strengths rather than copying those of Germany.
That said, I remain convinced that Britain can learn from Germany's high-tech engineering economy and its insurance-based welfare state. The challenge is to combine these with British strengths like financial/biz services and radical university-based innovation.
