UK Economic History

via Tejvan Pettinger at

On my other blog I wrote a few articles about British Economic history. It was inspired by watching Andrew Marr’s entertaining – Modern British history. One of my first memories of the news was the coal miners strike. I lived in Yorkshire and in 1984 would have been 7 years old. I remember everyday the local news always carried pictures of these people huddled over outside fires and wondering what they were doing. The modern economic history of Britain is in many ways stranger than fiction.
