The BSR has a note series responding to reader feedback sometime actually advancing the exposition of theory and practice:

"Note 1: Some aspects of inflation"

"Note 2: From earned income to pauperism and back"

"Note 3:Why the Bank of England cannot solve the cost of living crisis"
1 The BSR is free of charge as a result of its sponsorship of the George Boole Foundation and Agence Presse Européenne.


British Strategic Review (BSR) - SPECIAL EDITION: July 2022, "Monetarism & The Cost of Living"

Note 5: "Sustaining growth in real wages by investing in results"


This series was initiated in 1981 dedictated to the real incomes approach. We are reviewing the list of publication to select those that reflect the current stae of play of this policy paradigm.
