Thinking the unthinkable

£35.00

Product description

This is a book about how ideas become policies; a book about how the notions of a handful of economic theorists changed the lives of millions of citizens who have never even heard of them. It is also a governmental detective story: were the ideas that everybody found so radical in the 1980s? Where did they come from? Would their theoretical parents recognize them in practice in today's Britain (or Canada or New Zealand )?
This hardback copy is in very good condition, clean and tightly bound. It has a dust jacket also in very good condition, has a little bumping across the top of the book.
