The author reflects on the future status of the British Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). The author reveals that some people think that the DTI is an anachronism and should be split up while others argue that it is vital for ensuring the business is represented in government. He argues that the more important issue is about what the government needs to do to promote economic success.
