Using two pioneering advances - those of Eichengreen, and Calmfors and Drifill - in the study of economic performance, this monograph examines why it was not possible to form a coalition between workers, managers, and governments which produced high rates of economic growth in the post-war boom as occurred in other countries. The national initiatives of the Donovan Commission for trade union reform and the attempts at explicitly linking pay with productivity via incomes policies and the National Board for Prices and Incomes form one part of the analysis. The other part is the trans-national initiatives of the productivity agencies, the AACP, the BPC and the EPA. The response of organized labour, management, and governments to the promotion of institutional reform for faster growth is examined. Specific focus is given to technical change in the transport and distribution sectors.
