Abstract

In The Richer, The Poorer: How Britain Enriched the Few and Failed the Poor, Stewart Lansley explores how public policy has shaped economic inequality in Britain since the nineteenth century. Written with academic precision and a journalist’s panache, the book offers a valuable statement of a distinctively social democratic view of modern British history, with recommendations that deserve serious attention, writes Peter Sloman. The Richer, The Poorer: How Britain Enriched the Few and Failed the Poor. Stewart Lansley. Policy Press. 2022.
