After the Storm : The World Economy and Britain's Economic Future
Vince Cable's bestselling book, The Storm, explored and explained the causes of the 2008 world economic crisis and how Britain should respond to the great challenges it brought. In After the Storm, Cable, who was Business Secretary in the 2010-2015 coalition government, provides a unique perspective on the state of the global financial markets and how the British economy has fared since 2008.
This timely book will provide a previously unreported inside view of the coalition, and offers a carefully considered perspective on how the British economy should be managed over the next decade and beyond. What was sadly missing from the 2015 election campaign, Cable argues, was debate around the economic future of Britain, of how to make improvements in productivity to raise living standards, and above all how Britain can rebalance its economy and earn its keep in an increasingly competitive global market place. Cable addresses these issues from the unique vantage point of an academic and business economist who has spent the last five years as a key policy maker at the heart of government.
After the Storm is a fascinating and urgent intervention from one of the key figures in British politics of the past two decades.
