There is now a massive bonding between New Labour and Big Business, British & American. Capital is moving away from manufacturing and into the service industries. This not only affects those involved in the new information technology, but also the health, education, and social services that were previously the responsibility of governments.

Chapters include: Mandelson's Friends. A Party of Business. What are They up to? On Whose Agenda? Private finance initiative everywhere. A Manufacturing or Service Economy? Private Profit or Public provision? A Way out of the Dilemmas?
