This is an analysis of the social, political, and economic arrangements in Britain, which the author asserts have become out-of-date. He argues that the weaknesses of the economy cannot be divorced from the problems in the rest of society. He makes a critique of Britain's institutions and argues that we have an 18th-century state dealing with 20th-century issues.
