Government and Economies in the Postwar World: Economic Policies and Comparative Performance, 1945-85

By Andrew Graham; Anthony Seldon | Go to book overview

'twice as hard'. Those workers who were retained, hardly surprisingly, were more likely to cite relegation peril as a justification for large-scale dismissals than were the dismissed themselves.

When economic explanations are available for economic events, no need arises to resort to one in terms of moral propensities-whether attitudes, values, or norms of behaviour. Yet such factors are of the highest importance in their indirect effects, and in what they tell us of a society's institutions. Work remains less 'central' amongst British workers, and post-bourgeois minorities are smaller in Britain. Policy-makers, suspending their preconceptions, ought to ask why this may be so, and whether their social and economic objectives can be so neatly reconciled in practice as they can be in stirring political rhetoric.
