Dr Tomlinson, well established as an analyst of economic history and government policy, here contends that successive British governments have failed in their quest for an acceptable industrial policy that combines the central objectives shared by the major political parties. His trenchant exposition of both the macroeconomic context of industrial policy and its microeconomic effects illuminates the debate on a consistently controversial area of economic policy."@en ;
