Summary

Will Hutton, the Guardian's Economics Editor, is the most respected analyst writing in Britain today. He argues that the weakness of the economy can't be divorced from the problems of the rest of society. This is a root and branch, total critique of our institutions. We have eighteenth century state doing a twentieth century job. Our business doesn't get the investment it needs because of the City's stranglehold on the economy. The cult of the Gentleman is killing creativity. Parliament doesn't get the people's respect because it is unreformed; the government of the revolutionary Margaret Thatcher got lost; the opposition is crippled by its own conservatism. Hutton has uncomfortable explanations for the attitudes that prevent us moving forward into the twenty-first century as a truly modern country. Essential reading.
