Alternative Routes to Industrial Revival
The theme of this book has been that Britain must create a winning team within the next 10–15 years by developing the will to win and eliminating those who shoot through their own goal. There is no doubt at all that Britain could do this, just as she could catch up on modernization of her industry if she were to apply the knowledge and research capability she possesses and apply or attract the necessary investment to do so. That investment however, will only come if both British and foreign investors become confident that Britain has cured the British disease and that the team in which they invest is one which will win.
