Synopsis

A thrilling examination of our state of chaos and a hopeful manifesto for a different future, by one of our most influential and profound thinkers on the British economy.

Things have not been going great for Britain. Wages are flatlining, taxes are rising, and public services are collapsing. Our children can’t afford to buy houses, our parents aren’t receiving the social care they need and our neighbours are reliant on foodbanks. We are all yearning for a way out of the financial crises, generational wars and political dysfunction that dominate our lives. Most of all we want our future – and Britain’s – back.

Torsten Bell, Chief Executive of the Resolution Foundation, offers both a clear-eyed diagnosis of the problems facing our country – a uniquely toxic combination of huge inequality and stagnant economic growth – and a hopeful, bold vision for the alternative. He passionately points us towards a Britain that we can actually build – a future worth fighting for.

Great Britain? is a treasure trove of enlightening and original analysis, and a much-needed antidote to the pervading sense that the country’s decline is inevitable or irreversible.
