It looks at key themes, including economic growth and welfare, the working of the labour market, and the performance of entrepreneurs and managers. Alan Booth argues that a careful, balanced assessment (which must embrace the whole century rather than simply the postwar years) does not support the loud and persistent case for systematic failure in British management, labour, institutions, culture and economic policy. Relative decline was much more modest, patchy and inevitable than commonly believed."--Jacket." ;
