Customer Review

on 20 April 2014
This book was written before the rise of the Labour Party in the UK and it details the horrors of a world without a centralised welfare state. Anyone contemplating eroding what we have now further should read the RTP and hopefully it would make them think again - or not, they probably would not care because they will never be in the position that these men - and women - find themselves in.
Because it was written in a different time, it could be very clear that life needed to be improved and how that would come about, but the state monopolies envisioned here would only see partial fulfillment in the nationalised industries of post-War Britain. The vision of a dual currency system where the Socialist money would have greater value than the Capitalist money until it eventually eclipsed it would never be attempted and therefore it is impossible to know whether it would ever have worked.
The book has a deus ex machina ending which, without going into details, I found wholly disappointing and counter to the message of the book.
