    1. In some ways this is quite a depressing book, given all the social and political problems that we have in the UK. Hutton details the way that Laissez-faire capitalism and banking in particular has failed in the UK, and how these have affected the complete social fabric of the country. The subjects covers are as wide ranging as the erosion of parliament, the concentration of power in No. 10, education and the power of the press barons.The second half of the book are the proposals that he would li [...]


    2. An insightful book, mainly focusing on Britain from the seventies to 2010 and the events leading to the last coalition government with the focus being the economy, I found this a particular good rea considering current events in Britain.


    3. An interesting read ahead of the upcoming UK general election, reminding me of the situation immediately after that country's coalition government was formed in 2010. Hutton provides a snapshot of a brief period when there did seem to be general optimism about the Conservative-Liberal Democrat deal. Of course much of his initial optimism about the coalition government ability to transform Britain ultimately proved unfounded.Hutton's grand vision for a fairer Britain is well articulated and he pa [...]


    4. The book to read if you voted Conservative and believe they know what they are doing to get us out of the mess we are in. Turns out they don't and they won't, their economic plans for austerity built on lies. Who knew. Very accessible reading and I'm looking forward to Hutton's plan B, the one our politicians couldn't (or wouldn't) come up with.Me? I'm fairly apolitical these days. Suspect my three year old niece could run the country better than the poor party choices we have.


    5. An outstanding analyses of what is going wrong in Britain on the economic front but it could well be true of what is happeneing else where in the world. The suggested remedy is being advocated by a number of economists. After being sold out to Adam Smith's philosophy during the later part of the 20th century, the move is now towards greater role of the state, perhaps an outcome of a scenario similar to the 1930s.


    6. Thought-provoking, well-formed, forceful arguments. Will Hutton restates the importance of basic human values in evaluating economic, political and financial policies. A must-read for politicians and those who are interested in long-term intentions rather than short-term measures.
