Beschreibung

'A lively, upbeat account of the way we make our living' Sean O'Grady, Independent on SundayWhat 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 our 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 we have learnt to specialise in high end and niche areas that are the envy of the world. Taking in our disappointments and successes, Made in Britain is a brilliantly readable tour of our economic history, exploring the curious blend of resilience, innovation and economic free-thinking that makes us who we are. 'Does our national economy rely too much on the vagaries of the financial services sector? Why don't we actually build anything anymore? . . . A clear and lucid overview of the state of the economy' Sunday Times'Hits the spot. Upbeat, balanced and . . . filled with interesting facts . . . An engaging book written by an author whose passion and command of his subject shine through' City AM

Evan Davis was born in 1962 in Surrey. He is the highly respected presenter of the BBC Radio 4 Today programme, as well as presenting BBC Two business reality show Dragons' Den.
