——————————————————————————-

The recent recession and credit crisis has led to calls for the UK economy to be rebalanced, moving away from service based industries and towards manufacturing. However, further clarity is needed on what rebalancing really means, the implications of rebalancing, and indeed how industrial growth on a large scale can be achieved in relatively short periods of time.

This talk will outline how industrial policy has re-emerged in the United Kingdom after a long absence, and highlight the ongoing issues of attempting to spark industrial growth in a country that remains dominated by non-interventionist narratives.
