"My conviction is that our route through this recession must be characterised by greater devolution of power, and more
opportunities for communities to take control. Not 'on your bike' like previous recessions, but how can we help you open a bike repair workshop, start a social enterprise to encourage cycling, start a bike-share scheme in your neighbourhood. In the light of the failure of the institutions of the free market, these institutions of co-operation are truly in tune with the spirit of the age."
We're currently setting up a community bike hire scheme, so this is an interesting quote to say the least!
