Based in Bristol, and self employed, I think that distributism - the widespread ownership of private productive property - is the economic system most likely to discourage extremes of wealth and poverty and to contribute towards a more equitable and happy society.

I find the distributist critique of both developed capitalism - with its concentration of ownership in ever-fewer hands - and of historic socialism - where, ultimately, the state becomes the dominant capitalist - as insightful and helpful, as we try and move forward in light of the obvious collapse of the Anglo-American economic model.
