This is the 16th edition of the classic text on the UK economy, originally edited by Prest and Coppock. Comprehensively rewritten and updated at frequent intervals, The UK Economy has become acknowledged as one of the most systematic, up to date, and balanced assessments of British economic life. Written by a team of specialist economists and edited for the second time by Malcolm Sawyer, it combines factual information and informed analysis in the single
most accessible guide to the character, problems, and performance of the British economy.
Each chapter is written by an expert contributor. For this new edition all of the chapters have been carefully updated to include new data and analysis, ensuring that book remains fully up to date, and continues to provide an excellent introduction to the UK economy in its domestic, EU and global context.
