The UK ‘industrial strategy’ had been purported as a flagship policy for post-Brexit Britain. It was seen as a partial retreat from the ‘free-market, limited government’ model that had dominated UK economic policy over the last 40 years. Indeed, the ‘industrial strategy’ was held up as an opportunity for the UK to do things differently, while recognising the state can play a proactive role in shaping markets and enhancing growth. Moreover, while there were nuanced debates about particular aspects of the industrial strategy, it did attract a wide consensus from across business, academia and the political divide.
