Description

This book explores two recent crises in British political economy: the crisis of 19769, for which the trade unions were impugned, and the 2007 economic crisis, for which bankers were (at least initially) blamed. The author argues that the crisis resolution of the former principally the Thatcherite reforms of the 1980s led to the emergence of the banking crisis. Further, Kirkland demonstrates how narratives of blame have emerged and were used in both instances to promote specific agendas. Narrations of blame and crises were used to curb the trade union powers in the 1980s, whilst the 2007 crisis was quickly reframed as one of excessive government spending, which in turn has led to policies of austerity.



Takes an original methodological view that crises are inherently constructed entities

Contends that agents have unequal power in times of crisis and crisis resolution

Links the crisis of 19769 and that of in terms of policy response to the former

Recasts the 2007 crisis as a British crisis in light of this understanding
