Tackling Britain’s False Economy: Unemployment, Inflation, Slow Growth

Front Cover
Springer, Feb 7, 1997 - Business & Economics - 173 pages
The book analyses the failings of the British economy over the last two hundred years. It concludes that the main cause of its relatively poor performance has been inappropriate monetary and exchange rate policies. The damage these have done, especially to British manufacturing, has made the whole economy uncompetitive. Based on this analysis, the book then sets out an economic strategy designed to achieve much faster economic growth and a return to full employment, while containing inflation at acceptably low levels.
