ABSTRACT
This article reports on a speech delivered by Conservative leader David Cameron arguing that the British economy has become too focused on finance and services at the expense of other sectors. In his address to the CBI annual conference in London, England, Cameron said the government needed to take a more responsible attitude to economic development. Sir John Rose, chief executive of Rolls-Royce, argued that manufacturing had suffered from the effect.
