About this book

Colin Hay argues that the crisis in which we are still mired is best seen as a crisis of growth and not as a crisis of debt. It is a crisis of and for an excessively liberalised form of capitalism and the Anglo-liberal growth model to which it gave rise.

Reviews

'This book provides a clear analysis of Britain's long-standing economic problems that goes beyond the debates about the banking system, education standards, immigration, investment and government spending. It shows how any solution must integrate policies in all these areas, and generate a sustainable growth pattern that avoids environmental disasters.' - Peter Taylor-Gooby, University of Kent, UK

'Hay goes straight to the heart of the present crisis of the British economy and locates it in its proper historical context. He offers bold and trenchant analysis of both the specific origins of the British crisis in a particular growth model and what is now at stake in the present policy debate. His style is direct, highly relevant, and represents exactly the kind of engagement that British scholars should be making with our country's future.' - Helen Thompson, University of Cambridge, UK

'The British economy is still mired in the fall-out from the 2008 financial crash. In his new book Colin Hay provides a powerful and arresting argument that the crisis is not a crisis of debt but a crisis of growth, and that the causes are rooted in Britain's long addiction to a particular form of economic liberalism. Essential reading.' - Andrew Gamble, University of Cambridge, UK
