David Boyle

David Boyle David Boyle has been at the heart of the effort to popularise new economics, develop co-production and introduce time banks to Britain as a critical element of public service reform.  A long-time fellow at the New Economics Foundation, he was also the government’s independent reviewer on Barriers to Public Service Choice (2012-13). David is the author of a number of books about economics, history, social change and the future.  His book Authenticity: Brands, Fakes, Spin and the Lust for Real Life (Flamingo, 2003) helped put the search for authenticity on the agenda as a social phenomenon.  The Tyranny of Numbers (Flamingo, 2001) and The Sum of Our Discontent (Texere, 2001) predicted the backlash against the government’s target culture.  Funny Money: In search of alternative cash (Flamingo, 1999) launched the time banks movement in the UK.  His book Broke: Who Killed the Middle Classes? was published by Fourth Estate.  He also writes history books.
