Trade Unions: Public Goods or Public 'Bads'?

Distinguished economists discuss the impact of organised labour on the British economy

In this collection of papers from the late 1970s, some of Britain's leading economists and lawyers discuss the economic impact of the trade union movement and the policies that could be introduced to rein back union power.

The monograph provides insights into the thinking behind the government's efforts to challenge the trade unions during the 1980s under Margaret Thatcher.
