The UK economy is heading for a disastrous period of austerity and stagnation – GDP growth is unsustainable, debt is increasing, inequality is widening and unemployment is high. But all of these trends can be reversed by moving a few crucial levers in economic policy.
This book offers a bold manifesto for how we can get the economy back on track.
In this vital and timely call to action, leading economist and entrepreneur John Mills and political thinker Bryan Gould provide a searing critique of the decisions behind current UK economic policy and provide a clear step-by-step account of how to revive it, with little or no increase in inflation.
Things cannot go on as they are – this book delivers a fresh roadmap to improve our quality of life and secure Britain’s economic stability for future generations.
We desperately need radical thinking about how to rebalance the UK economy. This book provides it.
There are serious imbalances in the economy that cannot, should not, be ignored. A debate on how they are addressed is long overdue. I very much welcome this book (...) as a positive and thought-provoking contribution to such a debate.
Mills and Gould have provided a powerful analysis of Britain's decline and a plan for revival which will work.
