Thought-provoking exploration of how the UK economy functions

No rating

It took me a few weeks to read this, which I’ll attribute to not being very familiar with the topic. As you might expect from the blurb, it’s an exploration of how the economy is handled (or not, I suppose) by the State, set in relatively recent historical context. The author expresses his ideas in a straightforward manner, but after each chapter I found myself having to go off and reflect before starting on the next one. I guess that’s a good thing :) Johnson clearly has strong views on solutions to the problems/issues he highlights, and I’ll keep an eye out for how those might manifest in the real-world setting.
