    As an Anywhere Remainer I found many aspects of Goodhart's book difficult to swallow Nevertheless there is considerable merit in what he says and the well researched way in which he says it I had to fight the feeling that the book was merely a means to assuage those who fear the neoliberal agenda something that I think Goodhart dismisses too easily The book is not simply rhetoric it's wide ranging research and it's holistic analysis of economic political and social factors make it a must read for anyone trying to understand why the UK and other countries is where it is Goodhart dedicates his final chapter to solution Unlike Mazzacuto who provided an economic strategy in a page in the appendix to her book 'The Entrepreneurial State' the political will to implement Goodhart's solutions are unlikely to be championed by the main political parties in the UK Although I disagreed with some of his work I am glad I read it
