‘Britain’s personal debt crisis: how we got here and what to do about it’ is now available from Amazon. The book charts the rise of credit in the UK over the past forty years and provides an analysis of how this has damaged the resilience of households and our nation’s economy as a whole. Importantly, the book sets out a radical agenda to address the current crisis and restore Britain’s prosperity.
“Damon’s book provides a timely insight into the power of personal debt to not just make life a daily struggle of the public but do long term damage to the future our country. He matches detailed analysis with a passionate call for action that many will find compelling”
Stella Creasy MP
“Damon is one of those rare people who is able to combine a social policy researchers’ attention to detail with a campaigners’ zeal and passion to make change happen. The fact that he has managed to sustain this work for more than a decade, even when it has often meant swimming against the prevailing opinion of the times, is remarkable. Not only that, his analysis of the problems and solutions to Britain’s personal debt crisis is always insightful, and almost always right!”
