This is a fantastically unique book which gives a one off insight into the management of a modern economy, charting the opportunities and constraints that each Chancellor faced.
A really timely book which will have an up to date afterword by Howard Davies, Director of the LSE and so will really capture the sense of the British Economy today as well as in the past 30 years.
Introduction by Howard Davies is really contemporary and brings the thoughts of the former Chancellors into historical context as well as comparing them with the present day.
This is a really unique historical document which should be of great interest to anyone interested in politics.
The Chapters are written by Lord Healey, Lord Howe, Lord Lawson of Blaby, Lord Lamont and Kenneth Clarke, MP.
Each chapter offers a detailed account of the handling of the economy during that Chancellor's period of office. Taken together they provide a privileged insight into the way the British economy has been run – and why.
