An excellent quick read, very informative, and manages to answer the question it sets itself.
Robin lifts the covers on the struggles [ahem] of the UK banks to free themselves of governance, and how their influence has crept into the mainstream of UK economic management. You pretty much know the ending already, but the processes and influence [and incompetence] that created the situation today really should be more widely known and understood.

Ramsay situates the now much-reviled neoliberal movement within an older agenda. This agenda, which he calls the "overseas interest" and is rooted in our imperial history, has long sought the relaxation of financial controls that neoliberals ushered in over the last three decades. Capital accumulated in Britain now sails the high seas in search of higher returns, leaving ruin and poverty behind, as foreseen by the Cabinet committees that considered the scheme in the 1950s.

A shocking insight into how we are NOT "all in this together". Read it, and then read Nicholas Shaxson's "Treasure Islands: The men who stole the world".

Ideal for those of us with a layman's grasp of economics and sufficiently to the point to make you aghast at the self serving nature of the financial industry and blatant corruption within uk politics. Hurry on September 2014 and get us out of this joke of a "Union"......

A brief summary that reduces the quagmire of politics and economics than "bloke in the pub" language. An uncaring read on a deep subject, that allows your own conclusions to be drawn.
