London, England - Until I moved to London 20 years ago, a manifesto to me was something issued behind the Iron Curtain by an authoritarian government which laid out a five-year plan to show free marketeers how wrong they were.

Some of the manifestos have nothing to do with the economy, so I will bypass those sections, but much of it is economic and business-focused this time around, given this is being touted as the "Economic Election."
