Across the world, there is a growing recognition that a new kind of economy is needed: more democratic, less exploitative, less destructive of society and the planet. Paint Your Town Red looks at how wealth can be generated and shared at a local level through the experience of Matthew Brown, the driving-force behind the Preston Model. Exploring how different communities around the world are applying similar principles to take back control, Paint Your Town Red gives us a real blueprint for the wholesale transformation of society.

Paint Your Town Red is a timely reminder that despite years of austerity and neoliberalism there are now genuine economic alternatives emerging in many towns, cities and regions across the UK.” — John McDonnell, former Shadow Chancellor
