About me

Location Manchester, United Kingdom
Introduction Manchester Capitalism is a collective of provincial academics who publish together on financial reform, economic renewal and political mobilisation. Our output of books includes After the Great Complacence (OUP 2011) plus working papers and public interest reports, like 'Bringing Home the Bacon' or 'A Leveson for the Banks' available at CRESC.
This blog is written by individuals who are part of the the CRESC team and so reflect the different conversations, internal debates and (occasionally) the disagreements that go on inside any collective. Collectives are rare in academia and we are often asked how ideas emerge and compromises are reached in our work. This blog represents a window on that process. For that reason we write here with pseudonyms: to demonstrate the multi-voiced inputs to our output and to preserve the integrity of the collective.
