Ray Barrell, Geoff Mason, and Mary O'Mahony have compiled a volume that includes a smattering of economic history, the service sector, the IT revolution, international competitiveness, capital markets, R&D, and education. The connections between these topics are surprisingly coherent from one to the next, although the coherence of the whole is mainly implied. In 11 chapters by 23 contributors, this trim volume examines the complex interaction of innovation and productivity in Britain in the last 20-plus years.
