Dr Charles Read quoted in Liz Truss's press coverage


Economic historian, Dr Charles Read, has been cast in the role of Cassandra by the press coverage of Liz Truss's attempted rescue of her reputation. He has been quoted in the cover story of Monday's Guardian newspaper, as well as by the London Evening Standard, the Financial Timesthe iPoliticoTimes RadioLBC, the East Anglia BylinesAPNews and the National World, concerning a paper he sent to Kwasi Kwarteng, the then chancellor, and the talk he gave to civil servants before last September's mini budget, based on his historical research, warning about the danger of a financial crisis being brought about by budget measures that pushed up interest rates faster than they would otherwise rise.
