The idea that healthcare and education should be provided as universal public services to all who need them is widely accepted. But why leave it there? Why not expand it to more of life squo;s essentials? 

In their bold new book, Anna Coote and Andrew Percy argue that this transformational new policy edash; Universal Basic Services idash; is exactly what we need to save our societies and our planet. The old argument that free markets and individual choice are the best way to solve pressing problems of poverty, inequality and environmental degradation has led us to catastrophe, and must be abandoned. The authors show that expanding the principle of collective universal service provision to everyday essentials like transport, childcare and housing is not only the best way of tackling many of the biggest problems facing the contemporary world: itasquo;s also efficient, practical and affordable.

Anyone who cares about fighting for a fairer, greener and more democratic world should read this book.
