Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0631153071, Hardcover)

From the three-day week to three million unemployed, the decade after 1973 has witnessed the greatest upheaval in Britain's economic and social life since the Second World War. Governments fell as inflation and unemployment soared and prevailing orthodoxies crumbled beneath the weight of crisis and relative decline. Nick Gardner writes as a trained economist who was an insider in Whitehall for much of the period. He served as an adviser to some of the senior politicians attempting to overcome the crisis that engulfed the economy after 1973. This book is an accessible, non-specialist account of the economic policies and events of a troubled but crucial period in the formulation and testing of economic ideas. Introductory economics students, students of economic history, government and policymaking; government administrators.
