British economic and industrial policy since 1979 is examined using
a wide range of sources. Was this really -new-, revival of earlier
approaches or a rigorous extension of the IMF-imposed policies on
the 1974-79 Labour Government? The question is asked: Was the
creation of a large pool of unemployed labour necessary for
reshaping the economy or was the aim to secure fundamental changes
in the relations between capital and organised labour? Due to
setbacks suffered by trade unions in the 1980s with factory
closures and major job losses, the author questions Labours motives
in softening any meaningful opposition to the Conservatives,
supporting ERM in 1990, reducing the role of trade unions in the
Party itself and retaining key policies of the Thatcher era
especially its trade union laws."
