Although the Edwardian period may in retrospect appear to have been a golden age, it was in reality a time of much turbulence in the political and social fields. There were long and often violent strikes in the docks and coalmines as well as in other less vital industries.

Ricardo’s Law

Ricardo’s Law judges Tony Blair’s decade in power. The author marshals the evidence to address four indictments of how the modern state operates, and how New Labour failed to advance its agenda. Blair was given a mandate to modernise Britain’s institutions and include everyone in the prosperity of the nation. Fred Harrison explains why this prospectus could not be realised, because tax policies continue to favour the rich and penalise the poor.
