Andrew Glyn has been Tutor in Economics at Corpus Christi College Oxford since 1969, was an economic advisor to the National Union of Mineworkers, has been a consultant for the the International Labour Organisation and the UK Treasury and co-edits the Oxford Review of Economic Policy. He co-authored several books on post-war capitalism, edited Social Democracy in Neoliberal times (OUP 2001) and has published journal articles on unemployment, profitability, globalisation and the history of economic thought and newspaper articles on current economic policies.
'In lucid prose, and with striking graphs and vivid quotes, Andrew Glyn lays out a concise economic history of developed countries in the last decades of the twentieth century. As he explains, there was a decisive and unexpected return to business as usual, but the economic and social benefits of this shift are much less clear.' | s Adrian Wood, Professor of International Development, University of Oxford
