By its own account, Britain s public sector faces a squeeze of biblical proportions. Long years of austerity will consume our public services. Schools will close and hospital waiting lists will grow. Public spending, it is said, cannot be cut without undermining our future prosperity and inflicting brutal punishment on the most vulnerable in society. We must stop the cuts.

Hard-pressed public services and the welfare state must be protected, even if it means higher taxes and higher government borrowing. In this book Denham goes through the claims made to support high government spending, and takes a close look at how well they re actually delivered. Among other things, Denham finds out if more education spending really does pay off in terms of higher growth. If more health spending really has made the NHS the envy of the world. And if more welfare spending really can make poverty history. His priority is to dig out the facts.

For far too long society has accepted the growth of government spending based on little more than broad assertions of its benefit. That s no longer good enough.
