United Kingdom External Economic Policy

  • Samuel Brittan
Part of the International Economic Association Series book series (IEA)


The objectives of British economic policy have rarely been set out by official spokesmen in any but a very short-term sense. For a comprehensive statement one would have to go back to the Radcliffe Report on the Monetary System which came out as long ago as 1959, and was in no sense an official government pronouncement. Even the ambitious, but quickly jettisoned, National Plan of 1965 confined its objectives to numerical targets and had no comprehensive statement of aims.
