A chronological account of industrial policyThis book surveys governmental industrial policy in Britain from 1900 to the early 1990s, exploring the perennial concern of governments to improve the efficiency and the competitiveness of British industry. Organized chronologically, it focuses on the formation of policy-making, and policyimplementation, according to the ideas and beliefs that have dominated during the century. Thus industrial policy is traced through time of war and recession, through the building of the welfare state and times of growth, and through stagflation, economic liberalism, and deindustrialization. Theconstant theme of the book is the attempt by all governments to achieve the objectives of high growth, low unemployment, and international competitiveness.An examination of the effects of government ideologiesDr Tomlinson reveals both the microeconomic context of industrial policy, and microeconomic effects of these policies. The emphasis is on the formation of policy according to the ideology of the political party in power. Tomlinson also deals with the capacity of each government to carry out itspolicy, and the ways in which this capacity may be limited by economic constraints, or by the institutions through which industrial policy is implemented.Detailed case studiesThe focus of the book is on British industry, although in parts Tomlinson uses a comparative perspective to set British policy in the world context, most notably during the chapter on the 1980s. The book ends with two case studies, the industries of cotton and cars, to illuminate the policyexplored in the previous chapters. Tomlinson concludes that the British government has continuously found an acceptable industrial policy problematic.
