Welcome to David Boyle's website.

It is about some aspects of my work around history and future, and although it covers politics, money

and business, it is devoted to one broad theme: the importance of human-scale institutions over centralised ones, human imagination over dull rationalism, and the human spirit over technocratic reduction.

Who killed the middle classes?

Broke Even if the economy recovers, can the middle classes survive?  And who got them into this mess in the first place?
