With Britain’s economy a major topic of today’s news, join Newsnight’s former Economics Correspondent Duncan Weldon to learn from the past about how we arrived at this moment. In Two Hundred Years of Muddling Through, Duncan Weldon tells the story of how Britain’s economy and politics have interacted with each other from the time of the Industrial Revolution right up to the pandemic of 2020. As the economy emerges from the Covid-19 recession and sets out on a new post-Brexit future, an understanding of the past is vital to seeing how the future might play out.
