Book Description

First Published in 1952, Problems of Nationalized Industry presents the first serious discussion on the issues related to nationalization of industries in Britain during the first half of the twentieth century. Part I includes fourteen essays on the general framework of public corporations; methods of assessing compensation; the organization of nationalized industries; labour and staff problems; joint consultation between management and workers; finance and price policy; scientific research and development; and a comparison between nationalization in England and France. Part II consists of a substantial body of general conclusions which are related to the earlier chapters. This book is a must read for scholars and researchers of British politics, labour politics, labour economics and political science.
