‘Gerard Lyons is not only one of the cleverest economists in London – he is also the most accessible.’ Boris Johnson, Mayor of London

Reviewed by veteran journalist William Keegan, he notes that “it is good to welcome a new book by Gerard Lyons which goes against the grain of current pessimism. In The Consolations of EconomicsLyons, now a veteran among City economic analysts, provides a most readable account of decades of economic policies and events, and his subtitle, How We Will All Benefit from the New World Order, is a welcome counterblast against the prevailing orthodoxy.”
