A List of the 364 Economists Who Objected to Thatcherâ€™s Macro Policy
In the previous issue of this journal, Geoffrey Wood wrote of the important 1981 event when 364 economists signed a petition against Thatcherâ€™s macroeconomic policy. Here I offer an appendix listing the signatories. The list includes not only the most eminent economists at the time, but also many people who play a major role in public life todayâ€”including the Governor of the Bank of England and one other member of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC). Indeed, perhaps surprisingly, the signatories include a number of economists who are now Institute of Economic Affairs authors or members of the IEA Academic Advisory Council.
