Notes Planning a new Britain We began in 1931 as Political and Economic Planning (PEP), merging with the Centre for Studies in Social Policy to become PSI in 1978. The early inspiration for PEP arose from a growing dismay with the apparent weakness of liberal democracies to deliver security and prosperity, compared with the equally apparent effectiveness of planning elsewhere. Our first director, Max Nicholson, brought together a body of progressive thinkers to produce a National Plan for Great Britain, many aspects of which worked though into policy over the following 10 years, such as the creation of the NHS, a bureau of national statistics, new towns, ‘green belts’, national parks, integrated transport and other facets of the welfare state, even what became the South Bank in London.
