Vince Cable’s bestselling book, The Storm, explored and explained the causes of the 2008 world economic crisis and how Britain should respond to the great challenges it brought. In After the Storm, Cable, who was Business Secretary in the 2010-2015 coalition government, provides a unique perspective on the state of the global financial markets and how the British economy has fared since 2008.

This timely book will provide a previously unreported inside view of the coalition, and offers a carefully considered perspective on how the British economy should be managed over the next decade and beyond. What was sadly missing from the 2015 election campaign, Cable argues, was debate around the economic future of Britain, of how to make improvements in productivity to raise living standards, and above all how Britain can rebalance its economy and earn its keep in an increasingly competitive global market place. Cable addresses these issues from the unique vantage point of an academic and business economist who has spent the last five years as a key policy maker at the heart of government.

After the Storm is a fascinating and urgent intervention from one of the key figures in British politics of the past two decades.


A Book of the Year 2015

[A] thoughtful sequel to [Cable's] earlier bestseller on the global financial crisis, both for what it says about the state of the nation and for its occasional insights into life in the coalition government.Chris Mullin

A remarkably rounded work... Cable has produced a book that makes a serious and relevant contribution to the continuing debate about banking, infrastructure, housing, China, executive pay, short-termism and many of the other topics which continue to top the business and political agenda.
Evening Standard

[After the Storm] is a lucid, erudite analysis of the global economy, and Britain's place in it, between 2010 and 2015, as viewed from the vantage point of a senior member of the coalition
