Mr Osborne’s Economic Experiment

In his book "Mrs Thatcher's Economic Experiment" William Keegan won acclaim even from critics for the virulence of his attack on the government's monetarist policies of the early 1980s. These, in his opinion, produced an unnecessarily severe recession and much social damage. His new book, "Mr Osborne's Economic Experiment " is a conscious echo of that earlier work. Keegan believes that, although the circumstances are different, there are parallels in the way that unnecessarily deflationary policies aggravated the recession that was initially brought on by the financial crisis,and have caused needless social hardship. William Keegan has been the Senior Economics Commentator of The Observer for many years, having previously worked at the Bank of England and the Financial Times. He is the author of many books, including 'Mrs Thatcher Economic Experiment', (1984) and 'The Prudence of Mr Gordon Brown' (2003). This is his second work for Searching Finance, the first being''Saving the world?'' Gordon Brown Reconsidered (2012).
