Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Antony Fisher's achievements throughout a varied and fascinating life were extraordinary. A successful entrepreneur from his twenties, and a decorated Battle of Britain fighter pilot in World War II, he later introduced chicken factory-farming to the UK (his second wife said, 'Antony did more to put a chicken in every man's pot than any king or politician,') and made a fortune in the process. But it was Fisher's concern with the liberty of the individual, crystallised by a meeting with the free-market thinker Friedrich Hayek (author of The Road to Serfdom) that redirected his life. As a result, Fisher poured his wealth into establishing the Institute of Economic Affairs, an independent economic think tank that later had enormous influence on public policy and the views of leading politicians, notably Margaret Thatcher. By the time Fisher died in 1988 (having lost his fortune in a turtle-farming venture, and only four weeks after being knighted), the IEA and its spin-offs around the world had played a crucial role in changing the direction of post-war politics forever.

About the Author:

Gerald Frost is the former head of two think tanks, including the Centre for Policy Studies. A speechwriter to Keith Joseph during the 1979 general election, he knew Fisher and many who helped establish the IEA, as well as the politicians who came to embrace Fisher's views. He is an experienced journalist and author and has also been an adviser and speechwriter to Margaret Thatcher .

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
