Most historical accounts of economic policy set out to describe the way in which governments have attempted to solve their economic problems and to achieve their economic objectives. Jim Tomlinson, however, focuses on the problems themselves, arguing that the way in which areas of economic policy become ‘problems’ for policy makers is always problematic itself, that it is never obvious and never happens ‘naturally’. This approach is quite distinct from the Marxist, the Keynesian or the neo-classical accounts of economic policy, the schools of thought which are described and criticized in the introduction. Subsequent chapters use the issues of unemployment, the gold standard and problems of trade and Empire to demonstrate that these competing accounts all obscure the true complexities of the process. Because they adhere to simple assumptions about the role of economic theory or of ‘vested interests’ previous histories have been unable adequately to explain the dramatic change after the First World War in attitudes to unemployment, for instance, or the decision to return to gold in 1925. Jim Tomlinson surveys the institutional circumstances, the conflicting political pressures and the theories offered at the time in an attempt to discover the conditions which characterized the questions as economic problems and contributed to the choice of ‘solutions’. The result is a sophisticated and intellectually compelling account of matters which have remained at the forefront of political debate since its first publication in 1981.

Originally published in1985, Jim Tomlinson charters the route of British macroeconomic policy in the post-war era. This book argues that the objectives of macroeconomic policy have not been constant; that the emphasis has shifted from one item to another over time; and that this uncertainty and inconsistency over objectives goes a long way to explaining why macroeconomics management has not been a startling success.

Considering the recent impact of the capital market on corporate strategy, this text analyzes, through argument and supportive case studies, how pressures from the capital bull market of the 1990s and bear market of the early 2000s, have reshaped management action and calculation in large, publicly quoted US and UK corporations. Beginning with the dissatisfaction with classical strategy and its limited engagement with the processes of financialization, the book moves on to cover three detailed company case studies (General Electric, Ford and GlaxoSmithKline) which use long run financial data and analysis of company and industry narratives to illustrate and explore key themes. The book emphasizes the importance of company and industry narrative, while also analyzing long term financial results, and helps to explain the limits of management action and the burden of expectations placed on corporate governance. Presenting financial and market information on trajectory in an accessible way, this book provides a distinctive, critical social science account of management in large UK and US corporations, and it is a valuable resource for students, scholars and researchers of business, management, political economy and non-mainstream economics. short listed for the 2007 IPEG Book Prize

Nach den Umstürzen in der Arabischen Welt und der Atomkatastrophe von Japan steht fest: Wir brauchen eine Abkehr von fossilen Energien und mit Atomkraft ist die Wende nicht zu machen. Kanzlerin Merkel will Deutschland zum Ökostromland umbauen, doch der Ausstieg aus der Kernenergie hat seinen Preis für Bürger, Unternehmen und die Politik. Er wird die Fundamente der Gesellschaft verändern. Schon heute entstehen Tag für Tag ganze Stadtteile, in denen eine neue Ära von Mobilität, Wohnen, Bildung und Energiegewinnung Wirklichkeit wird – und Jeremy Rifkin ist ihr Chefplaner. Er berichtet von den Begegnungen mit den Topmanagern großer Konzerne wie IBM, Siemens, EnBW, Daimler und nimmt den Leser mit in die Hinterzimmer von Spitzenpolitikern wie Angela Merkel, David Cameron oder Romano Prodi, wo er unermüdlich für eine neue Welt eintritt. Sein Buch ist der faszinierende Werkstattbericht eines Insiders über Zukunftstechnologien, die grüne Exportschlager werden können.
