Economic credibility is key

It was good to see today Labour launch proposals on the economy ahead of next week's Budget.  It is right to ensure the focus is on growth and not just on austerity.  Labour has also announced a review of business and enterprise policy.  These announcements demonstrate that Labour is serious about engaging with the debate about the future of our economy.  As we review our policies, we need to remember that credibility on the economy is key.  That means we need to think through just why that credibility was damaged and how, at a deep level, we can rebuild it.
