This book sets out different meanings of an economic
constitution, and applies them to key areas of economic
management, including taxation and public borrowing, the
management of public spending, (including the Spending
Review), monetary policy, financial services regulation,
industrial policy (including state shareholdings) and
government contracting. It analyses the key institutions
involved such as the Treasury and the Bank of England, also
including a number of less well-known bodies such as the
Office for Budget Responsibility. There is also coverage
of the international context in which these institutions
operate especially the European Union and the World Trade
Organisation. It thus provides an account of the public law
applying to economic management in the UK.
