Made In Britain: How the nation earns its living

Evan Davis

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Economics

A brilliant, thought-provoking look at British manufacturing industries and whether it matters that we don't produce like we used to, from the much-loved Today presenter, Evan Davis.

What are countries famous for making? For Japan, the answer might be electronic goods. For Germany, automobiles. For France, perhaps a Louis Vuitton bag. But what about Britain?

Here, Evan Davis sets himself the task of finding out. Offering a fascinating look at Britain's manufacturing industries and revealing the various companies that might not be household names, but are very much world leaders in their fields, he shows how they have learnt to specialise in high end and niche areas that are the envy of the world.

Taking in their disappointments and successes, MADE IN BRITAIN is a brilliantly readable tour of the UK's economic history, exploring the curious blend of resilience, innovation and economic free-thinking that makes them who they are.
