The soon-to-be released Q3 edition of the British Strategic Review provides a plain English description of how monetarism and Keynesianism impact the wellbeing of the British constituents.

Section 1 clarifies various economic concepts.

Section 2 traces the impact of monetarism and Keynesianism on the wellbeing of British constituents.

Section 3 reviews the impacts of our form of economic management and on the planet and human survival.

Section 4 reviews the recent evidence in the Lords Economic Affairs Committee Report on QE. One participant saw quantitative easing (QE) as a policy without a theory and others made predictions as if there is an underlying theory. The Bank of England (BoE) remains uncertain. Their evaluations conclude they are "still learning about the effectiveness of QE". For over a decade, the government and BoE have therefore experimented with the British economy and constituent wellbeing on a grand scale. The paradoxical aspect of the Terms of Reference of the Committee's review is that it does not touch on the identification of solutions to the crisis created by QE. Fortunately, more substantive evidence from experienced economists, not included in the Economic Affairs Committee witness list, has provided a more realistic perspective on significant mistakes in policy, on the one hand, as well as some proposed solutions, on the other.

This edition of BSR cuts through such uncertainty with clear explanations of several important facts and relationships that are often misunderstood.

Section 5 concerns the economic constraints imposed by the British Constitution.

Section 6 suggests ways to improve the acquisition and beneficial application of knowledge for a more productive economy.

Section 7 provides both theory and practical means to implement solutions to the current economic crisis.

Section 8 is a more detailed technical section which confirms that QE is a policy with no theorical underpinning through mathematical and sector analyses. As flawed theories monetarism and Keynesianism are extremely inefficient means of managing the economy.
