Coping with Recession: UK Company Performance in Adversity

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Oct 2, 1997 - Business & Economics - 198 pages
This book examines how companies cope with the pressures which are unleashed by recessions. It is based on a large-scale survey undertaken in the Spring of 1993 which elicited the participation of more than 600 leading UK companies. The questionnaire data were combined with a long time series of data on the financial performance of most of the companies so that it was possible to trace effects left over from the recession in the early 1980s. The four main issues examined in the book are as follows. What makes companies vulnerable to recessionary pressures? How do companies typically respond to these pressures? How have recessionary pressures been transmitted back into labour markets, and what kinds of institutional changes have they induced? Finally, do recessionary pressures stimulate innovative activity?
