Alconbury Enterprise Campus SEZ 2024 – 40 x 30cm, acrylic on canvas

How to kidnap a countyry. Create division and sow chaos in the economy. Exit social democracy and start replacing it with corporate governance, the nation-state will quickly atrophy and wither away. Establish dozens of Special Economic Zone subsidized with billions in public money given by the govt to their favoured companies, allowing them to asset strip all councils and public services. Replace collective sovereignty with corporate sovereignty. Dismantle big govt and remove the obstacles of ‘intervention’ and fair redistribution of GDP. License the SEZs and Freeports for +25 years, future proofing them from any incoming govts that may wish to revoke contracts. Should a new govt pursue revocation of SEZ licenses and contracts, hit them with Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS), sue the govt.
