About this book

Introduction

An authoritative inside account of the origins, successes and failures of monetarism in Britain. Gordon Pepper provides a portrait of early monetarism in the UK, explains its growing appeal in the 1970s and assesses the outcome of monetarism under Thatcher, from his own perspective as a 'fly on the wall'. He provides a comprehensive guide to macroeconomic forecasting and its policy implications.
