It's the Economy, Stupid : Economics for voters Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Pollsters are constantly worrying about our perceptions of politicians.

What do their other halves look like? Who looks best when eating a bacon sandwich? Should they even be eating bacon sandwiches in the first place?

For the voter, though, it all comes down to one thing: the economy. While good economic news can send popularity sky-rocketing, bad performance can blight a party's election chances for years.

But, with policies often working with time lags, it's rarely clear who is responsible for what - especially when their stances on the biggest issues of the day - immigration, the EU, the NHS - are clouded in rhetoric rather than grounded in hard economic fact. It's the Economy, Stupid sets out to change all that.

This incisive, accessible guide explodes some of the most entrenched myths of British political debate.

Does immigration help or harm our economy? Are austerity measures the best way to tackle a financial meltdown?

Is the NHS in crisis? With answers to all these questions and more, this is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how their vote will affect their financial future.
