Liberal Democrat Principles and Vision
Liberal Democrats believe that economic growth must be sustainable, and that it must help to create
full employment, decent incomes, a civilized welfare state and high quality public services.
We want to build an economy on the basis of investment, high skills, individual enterprise and balanced growth
across all sectors and regions. We support an economy based on competition and devolved power,
not on monopolies. We support a tax system which rewards work, incentivises investment, and which
is fair and simplified. We believe in open economies and international trade.
We want to compete on the basis of high skills and of green technologies and products which cut pollution and make the best
use of increasingly scarce natural resources. Liberal Democrats believe that every person should be
enabled to succeed, and that society should use its resources to protect those who would otherwise
fall into poverty, and provide a decent level of protection against unemployment, sickness and old age.
