Inhaltsangabe: A compelling book that examines Gordon Brown?s rise to power, his years as Chancellor, and his dramatic decision to give the Bank of England independence

"An essential read for anyone who wants to properly understand political and economic policy developments over the past 15 years and enjoy some good insights about the future."

Neil Kinnock, Vice President of the European Commission and former leader of the Labour Party.

"For twenty years one of the most sceptical and authoritative voices on economic affairs in the British press."

Robert Harris, best selling author.

"A splendidly vivid account of the background, outlook and record of the most powerful Chancellor of modern times."

Anthony Howard, biographer and political commentator.

The economic policy of new Labour has been fundamental to its success. Gordon Brown has been at the very heart of new Labour?s economic policy since the late 1980s and has been highly instrumental in convincing both the British public and the City that a Labour government can run the economy responsibly. He has generally been a popular and well?respected Chancellor ? during his early years in office, he was highly praised for his prudence and yet now, well into the second term of office many of the issues on which the Blair government was elected, such as health and education, have not yet been satisfactorily addressed, and Gordon Brown is now being criticised for what many see as his imprudence in handling the nationâ s finances.

Examining how successful Labourâ s economic policy has really been, when allowing for the good fortune of a world?wide economic boom, Keegan provides insights into the policies of new Labour, Gordon Brown?s rise to power, the impact of his policies and how future policies might influence the economy.

  • Written by a well?known and highly respected journalist who has been close to the heart of politics in Britain for many years, and who is thus able to offer an insiderâ s view of how policy developed in both opposition and the Government
  • Examines the professional relationships and private friction between Brown, other members of the Cabinet and the Bank of England
  • Includes much previously unpublished material
