This important book is the first thorough evaluation of the economic legacy left by three successive Conservative governments. With a foreword by Brian Reddaway and specialist contributions from over thirty leading economists, it offers refreshing analysis of thirteen years of economic and social change and previous unique insight into the prospects facing Britain in the 1990s and beyond.
Divided into four parts, the book opens by placing Britain's economic situation in a global context; part two questions the success of government policy and structural change during the Thatcher years; this is followed by a study of the unsettling effects caused by the changing labor market during the 1980s; the final section describes the legacy inherited by the nation as a result of an era of dramatic economic change.
A combination of serious journalism and fascinating analytical insight, this book is essential reading for those in search of a clear and comprehensive picture of the major economic issues affecting Britain at the end of the twentieth century.
